L. Sasha Gora is a writer and cultural historian with a focus on food history and contemporary art (often separately but sometimes together). Her writing has been featured in publications such as Gather, Chickpea, and MUNCHIES: Food By Vice. In 2015 she presented Talking with Your Mouth Full as part of Forecast Forum at Haus der Kulturen der Welt, and in 2014 she co-curated FOOD SOUND UNDERGROUND, while working at PLATFORM, Munich. She joined the Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society as a doctoral candidate in April 2015, where she is researching the new Nordic food movement, contemporary Canadian cuisine and reimaginations of Indigenous food cultures. She lectures at the Department of American Studies at the University of Munich. A Torontonian by birth (and at heart), she studied in Montreal, Copenhagen and Gothenburg, and now lives in Munich.
Her favourite and sharpest knife, bought at the fish market in Busan, South Korea, was photographed by Vivi D'Angelo.
