Su-Jit Lin

Su-Jit Lin considers herself a storyteller first and everything else second. She has been a professional freelance writer with over a decade of experience in journalism, primarily in the food and travel space.

Experience: Su-Jit has been working in the food industry since her childhood, having been raised in a commercial restaurant kitchen. She is the product of two generations of chefs and immigrant-owned businesses.

Since then, she has written over 250 reference articles, taste tests, food reviews, essays, product reviews, lifestyle and culture stories, shopping guides, kitchen budgeting, kitchen tools and gadgets, and more.

In addition to Allrecipes, her work can be found on The Spruce Eats, The Kitchn, Yummly, HuffPost, Eat This, Not That!, Simply Recipes, Well+Good, EatingWell, Thrillist, People, OpenTable, Al Jazeera, Longreads, AAA Magazine, and others. Her person, however, can be found traveling for food; working off the food at the gym or on some type of adventure; or writing about the intersection of all of the above and how it shapes our shared human experience.

Education: Su-Jit is a graduate of Tulane University with a bachelor's degree in history and English. She has also studied at Columbia University and Stony Brook University.

She loves healthy spins on comfort classics, from red beans and rice to blueberry muffins, to roasted vegetables (also her go-to dish to bring to a potluck). Su-Jit can't live without a sharp chef's knife with a sturdy handle and a good wok chuan in the kitchen.
