Hello! I’m Korsha Wilson, a food writer and podcast host living in the New York City area. I am obsessed with restaurants, food, culture and the intersection of how we eat and what it says about our society.
I am a graduate of The Culinary Institute of America and spent two years in journalism school at Emerson College before I decided to follow my passion for restaurants, food and writing. I have written for many publications including The New York Times, Saveur, Food & Wine, the New Yorker, The Boston Globe, Boston Magazine, Eater, Civil Eats, Thrillist and more.
I was named a Southern Foodways Alliance Smith fellow and part of Jack Jones Literary Arts’ inaugural #Culture,Too fellowship in 2019. In 2020, my essay on restaurant criticism was included in “Best American Food Writing”, an anthology edited by J.Kenji Lopez-Alt and Silvia Killingsworth.
I also host a podcast called A Hungry Society that highlights diverse voices in the food world. I’ve worked a bunch of odd jobs in hospitality and food production, including a year-and-a-half stint as a mozzarella cheese maker in New England. You can take a look at my resume here.
When I’m not writing you can find me cooking in my tiny kitchen, listening to music, visiting a museum, reading or heading to a restaurant.
