Krista Faist

Founder and Publisher

Krista helped launch Foodism in the UK and after spending nearly four years in London, Toronto was calling. When she jumped back across the pond in late 2015, she brought the Foodism brand with her. She now leads the charge as Foodism Toronto's Publisher. When not working (term used loosely), she spends her time on the ground discovering (read: eating) everything the city is cooking up. She's a lover of cats, hater of the term 'cat lady,' endless curator of Spotify playlists and on the constant hunt for the city's perfect negroni.
