I’m Lisa Jackson, the founder and editor of Eat Drink Travel Magazine—a food and drink magazine based in Hamilton, Ontario. I launched this website in 2013 as an outlet for my love of food and travel. But before long, it soon ballooned to more than 30 contributors and thousands of readers.
So I’ve spent the last decade following my nose and belly, and then writing about it. I don’t just write here either: I’m a regular contributor to the Food Network Canada and the LCBO Food and Drink Magazine. You may have also seen my bylines in publications like The Toronto Star, The Globe and Mail, The Independent, CAA Magazine, Saveur, and more.
As a journalist, I’ve been lucky enough to interview top chefs like Michael Smith, Chuck Hughes, Curtis Stone, Catherine Fulvio, and Massimo Capra and become a regular contributor at the Food Network Canada. And I’ll do what it takes to get a juicy story: from drinking a dead toe cocktail to taking a bacon-themed food tour to venturing to Palestine for the Taybeh beer festival.
So yeah…I’m a food-obsessed.
True story: I’m even related to the chef who invented Irish coffee – a fun story you can read on The Food Network Canada.
