During her tenure as postdoctoral fellow at McGill University, Alexia took on the role of managing editor of CuiZine: The Journal of Canadian Food Cultures; revue des cultures culinaires au Canada (see: www.cuizine.mcgill.ca) for two issues in 2013 (4.1 and 4.2), writing introductory text in French and English, providing editorial oversight and extending the electronic journal’s platform and offerings. The popular series, “Cooking the Books,” in which today’s cooks discuss their experience cooking from historical Canadian cookery texts, was first conceived and launched by Alexia. The lovely “Tableaux” series on the Canadian Literary Fare Research Team's site (canadianliteraryfare.org), in which Alexia showcases culinary creations inspired by literary texts, speaks further to Alexia’s creativity and attention to detail.
During her tenure with the journal, circulation rose to over 12,000 readers annually in more than 114 countries, evidence that CuiZine benefitted enormously from Alexia’s strong stewardship. CuiZine is peer-reviewed open-access e-journal published by McGill Library, indexed through CAB Abstracts and World Health Databases.
