Lisa Shames

CS Magazine

The ability to expertly wield escargot tongs at the age of 8 doesn't necessarily translate to a career in food writing, but that's what happened to Lisa Shames. Tapping into her love for food, restaurants and travel, including stints living in Madrid, Montreal and Guadeloupe, Shames has covered topics ranging from a three-day food expo in Spain and an ingredient that 'glues' proteins together to the new breed of butchers for a variety of publications, including Time Out Chicago, Men's Book, Frontdesk, Chicago Sun Times and So Good. Currently as Dining Editor of CS magazine, she spends her time exploring Chicago's restaurant scene in between frequent trips to the gym.
