Leslie Wu


I’m a Toronto-based freelance writer who has spent the last 14 years traveling the globe as a magazine editor, and a lifetime consuming and exploring the world’s most interesting plates. A former editorial director of several national trade magazines on food, restaurants and fashion, I’ve covered luxury global trends and local flavors — and the chefs, artisans and tastemakers that drive them — across Asia, the Americas and Europe. Whether foraging with herb witches in Germany or hunting for the perfect small batch bourbon, I’m always seeking out new experiences in restaurants, wines and spirits and travel. I’m also putting my Masters degree in Communications to use by teaching magazine journalism to the next generation of explorers. I tweet at @leslie_wu
