Alexis deBoschnek is a veteran recipe developer and viral video host based in the Catskills in upstate New York. Her debut cookbook, To the Last Bite (April 2022; ), features 100 recipes that guide home cooks to make the most of each and every ingredient, and eliminate food waste in creative ways – from using leftover carrot tops, to fresh herbs, egg whites, and more. To the Last Bite is an ode to the Catskills and Alexis's mother, a master gardener and home cook who designed and grew the family's expansive vegetable and herb garden, and taught Alexis everything she knows about gardening and cooking, including the precise moment vegetables are ripe for picking, how to compost back into the garden's soil, cooking in a sustainable way that minimizes food waste in the kitchen, and so much more.

Raised on a farm in the Catskills, Alexis is a longtime editorial writer and recipe developer who has been on staff at Eater, TastingTable and Buzzfeed, and contributed to outlets like Food52, The Kitchn, Complex's First We Feast and Chowhound, among others. Most recently, Alexis was the longtime Senior Test Kitchen Manager and on-camera talent at Buzzfeed's Tasty, where she hosted the original viral video series "Chef Out of Water" and "Friend in Town" which has racked up tens of millions of views. She is currently a video host for Better Homes & Gardens show, "Then & Now."
