Lindsay Burgess


Digital Editor

When Lindsay moved home after five years in the UK, she found her favourite food and drink mag setting up shop here in Toronto. As Foodism Toronto's digital editor, she's reconnecting with old haunts and finding new favourites all around the city. She takes her coffee black, her music loud, her wines local and her chocolate salted. In her spare time, you'll find her trying to make space for more kitchen gadgets and testing pairings for the perfect boilermaker.
