As a journalism major in college, Alexandra's first foray into food writing began when she launched her own column in the school paper. While completing her M.A. in magazine writing, she joined the Time Out New York team as a food and drink intern, while assisting as an editor at Spoon University, a nationwide food publication for college kids by college kids. In between classes, she spent time working in a variety of kitchens (aside from her own), including a six-seater Thai fusion takeout joint, a bustling and dimly lit farm-to-table spot, and an often celeb-studded macrobiotic Japanese restaurant.
