Editor, Kitchen & Cooking

Since joining Reviewed in mid-2018, she's produced in-depth reviews and guides on everything from meal kits to stand mixers and the right way to cook an egg.
Cassidy holds a Bachelor's degree in English and Film Studies from Tufts University. Outside of her work at Reviewed, she's also the film critic at The Improper Bostonian and a print editor at Much Ado About Cinema.
