Claire Robinson        

Known for "5 Ingredient Fix" on Food Network

Claire Robinson combines her passions for food and television in "5 Ingredient Fix," a new Food Network series featuring delicious eclectic recipes made with five ingredients or fewer. Claire believes the best dishes feature carefully-selected fresh foods with distinct flavors, a straightforward cooking style that also promotes healthy and seasonal eating.

With a multi-ethnic background, Claire cites her French-speaking grandmother as a major influence on her love for food, a joy passed on through many generations. Born in Jacksonville, Fla. Claire and her family spent time in St. Augustine, Fla.; Houston; and New Orleans but ultimately settled in Memphis, Tenn.

Claire graduated from The University of Memphis in 1999 with a B.A. in Communications. While in college, Claire worked at Maggie's Pharm where she learned to appreciate the amazing flavors, scents and uses for exotic herbs and spices a love she applies to her cooking today. Claire gained behind-the-scenes media experience at Memphis' CBS affiliate, WREG-TV, and at WMC-FM radio. At Tiger Sports Properties, a sports marketing agency, Claire handled marketing for The University of Memphis' athletic department.

Despite enjoying her jobs, Claire realized she would never love another career the way she loved cooking. She decided to pursue her dream by moving to New York City and attending The French Culinary Institute; she graduated in November 2005. Along with being an accomplished private chef, Claire spent time working on culinary production teams for several cooking series including Food Networks Easy Entertaining with Michael Chiarello and PBS' "Everyday Baking for Everyday Food."

Aside from cooking, Claire enjoys a variety of unique sports including skydiving, boxing, and slalom waterskiing. She currently lives in New York City.
