Avery Lowe’s curiosity and passion for all things culinary was a path determined early in life, stretching back to afternoons on the school bus where she would interview her friends and seatmates on what they had for dinner the night prior. This hunger and desire to instill a love for food in everyone around her set Avery on a professional quest to cook, learn, and always be around food. Her culinary journey started at America’s Test Kitchen, where she worked on the Kitchen Operations team as the senior kitchen assistant, absorbing knowledge of specialty-ingredient procurement and the recipe development process. In 2021, Avery joined the Ninja Test Kitchen, where she works as a research chef on the Motorized team. She happily spends her days drinking smoothies and working to make the home cook’s experience in the kitchen more fulfilling. In her spare time, you can find her writing (Avery received her bachelor’s degree in English from Connecticut College in 2018), riding her bike, playing guitar, and, of course, cooking for family and friends.
