 Annus Mirabilis Dinner  2014

Thanks to Alex Thomopolous for being our 2014 featured chef! Stay tuned for our 2015 featured chef!

Now the host of HUNGRY’s “Bites & Booze: Gluten Free” and "Gluten Free with Alex T”, Alex Thomopoulos is a stand-up comic turned chef. After more than two years doing stand-up comedy in Los Angeles, Alex often found greater joy in the kitchen cooking then on stage performing. She enrolled in the International Culinary School at the Art Institute, and soon after started her own catering company. Her unique and flavor packed cooking style has led to a growing success for her and her business. 


In 2011 Alex was diagnosed with Celiac Disease, which forced her to follow a strict gluten free diet and rethink the way she knew how to cook.  Passionate about the environment and cooking with sustainable ingredients, she strives to prove just how versatile and doable a gluten-free lifestyle can be. 


Alex’s passion for food and laughter is infectious. Her spontaneous, quirky and honest personality is something that makes her a unique talent both on camera and in her writing. Her fearlessness and impeccable comedic timing is something that she has become known for, and her conversational tone allows for audiences of all ages to relate to her. 


In addition to hosting her own cooking shows, she is a regular recipe and content contributor for KitchenAid, and the Chalkboard Magazine websites as well as a reoccurring guest and guest co-host of Hallmark Channel’s Home and Family Show. 



*Annus Mirabilis is a Latin phrase meaning “Wonderful Year,” it was also the title of a collection of articles written by Albert Einstein in 1905.  His article on the Theory of Relativity was included in the Annus Mirabilis papers.
