Born in New York, Chanoa Tarle grew up in Miami, and spent nearly seven years living in the Balkans (first Belgrade then Montenegro), before landing in Los Angeles. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Fashion Merchandising in Miami, graduating during the recession.
"There weren't many fashion industry opportunities at the time, and certainly not many in South Florida," says Chanoa. "I eventually merged my two loves--writing and fashion, providing copywriting services and also writing for publications.
Do you believe that being a writer helps you enjoy or appreciate food more?
I’m a copywriter, but I’m often told I describe food, drink, products and experiences outside of work as if I work for the companies. I have a deep passion and appreciation for the pleasures of life and I get excited about good food.
Do you ever travel for food?
I don’t travel for food but it’s a top priority on vacation. I love to research restaurants in advance and discover others while I’m there. I also behave differently on vacation. For example, you can find me drinking up to 5 espressos a day whenever I’m in Italy. That’s simply not a physical (or mental) possibility for me at home!
