Alicia Kennedy, Food & Drink Writer


I'm Alicia Kennedy, a Long Island–born, Brooklyn-based food writer and recipe developer. My work focuses on the intersection of food and politics, cocktails, vegan cuisine, and Puerto Rico. Before the paper's demise, I was a Village Voice contributor, and I've also recently written for The Washington Post, The New York TimesThe Guardian, GQ, Eaterand more. My podcast, Meatless, features conversations with chefs and writers on issues around culture and meat consumption. I regularly contribute to and, in 2018, served as one of nine spirits judges for the New York World Wine & Spirits Competition. 

In addition to all that, I'm one of the co-organizers of the Food Writers' Workshop, an inclusive and accessible conference to empower food media creators.

Before writing took over, I worked as a copy editor at New York Magazine and Food & Wine. For a year, I also ran a bakery. Here's my CV. To get in touch about writing and editing projects or other collaborations, please email me!
