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 who was diagnosed with Celiac Disease in 2010. 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.

Having Celiac Disease, Alex never focuses on the few ingredients she can’t eat, but rather celebrates the never-ending list of ones she can enjoy. Her goal is to create delicious, approachable and comforting food and drink recipes perfect for easy entertaining -- and they just happen to be gluten free. Passionate about the environment and cooking with sustainable ingredients, she strives to prove just how versatile and doable a gluten-free lifestyle can be and believes her diagnoses with Celiac Disease has completely changed the way she cooks -- for the better.

In 2017 she took the role of Head Chef at the new Venice beach café/restaurant Great White designing a balanced menu filled with indulgent cravings and healthy fare.

Alex graduated from The Second City Hollywood as well as studied at The Groundlings, and Upright Citizen Brigade. 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.

In addition to hosting her own cooking shows, she was a series regular on MTV’s "Disaster Date," and is a regular recipe and content contributor for KitchenAid, and the Chalkboard Magazine websites. She also is a reoccurring guest and guest co-host of Hallmark Channel’s "Home and Family Show." was listed as Top LA Food Blogs by Refinery 29.
