Su-Jit Lin

Su-Jit is a storyteller first and everything else second. Her work has been featured on Huffington Post, Longreads, Thrillist, The Kitchn, Al Jazeera, Folks, Ravishly, AAA Magazine, Edible Long Island, and others. Her person, however, can be found traveling for food, working off the food at the gym or on some type of adventure, or writing about all of the above and how they shape the human experience.


Growing up in a commercial kitchen as the product of two generations of chefs, one could say food is not only in Su-Jit's belly, but also in her blood. She has an intimate perspective of what life is like behind the line, and writes from that lens, especially when highlighting the makers of her community. She has served as food editor for Where Y'at Magazine in New Orleans, a columnist for Edible Long Island, and as a contributing writer specializing in food for various local and national publications.


As a history and English double major at Tulane University, research is her huckleberry jam. Being able to combine both and food is one of her greatest pleasures.
