Alexandra Carlton


Alexandra Carlton has been a journalist for approximately 20 years, specialising in food and travel for around nine of those (don’t quote her on that; numbers are not a strong point). As well as Gourmet Traveller, she writes for Qantas Magazine, Escape, The Australian,, The Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide and the WA Good Food Guide. She is also the Oceania Academy Chair for World’s 50 Best Restaurants. She travels for around half the year and has two favourite places to eat in the world: the first is pretty much anywhere in Seoul, South Korea, and the second is on her sofa in Marrickville in Sydney’s inner west with a plate of Malay takeout and a backlog of trashy TV.
