Our Team

Lisa Alexander, Publisher And Editor-In-Chief

Lisa comes from a journalist background, where she’s written feature pieces on artisans, chefs, and travel for not only edible LA, but other publications. Her fiction has been published in numerous literary journals, won multiple awards and been staged by LA’s longest running spoken-word series. A past life in the movie industry led to an Emmy nomination for producing. Now what she loves best are interviewing tiger-striped tomatoes, delving deep into culinary backstreets, and assembling a delicious collage of the LA food scene.

Shauna Burke, Travel Editor

A Malibu native, our former editor-in-chief ditched the corporate office to become a classically trained chef and Certified Sommelier. This morphed into recipe development and consulting, writing for numerous publications, authoring plant-based cookbooks, and traveling as much as possible. Shauna stepped back from edible LA to raise a family and remains a regular travel writer for the magazine.

Carolina Korman, Photography Editor

Carolina is a food, beverage, restaurant, chef and cookbook photographer in Los Angeles as well as being our photo editor. When she visits her hometown in Buenos Aires, she travels with her camera and loves to photograph local food. She has a PhD in psychology which, as well as her background in fine art and sociology, gives her a unique sensibility to her surroundings that translates into her gorgeous photography.

Ken Concepcion, Cookbook Editor

Ken is co-owner of Now Serving, a cookbook and culinary shop in Chinatown. Before becoming a bookseller with his wife and partner, Michelle Mungcal, Ken worked as a chef in the restaurant industry for nearly 20 years. He learned on the job, working his way up and devouring as much food writing as possible. With the last cookbook shop in LA closing in 2011, he and Michelle decided to pursue a true passion project—to provide a place for the food and hospitality community while also working on something more personal—opening Now Serving in 2017.
