Ailsa (sounds like "Elsa") hails from Norfolk, Virginia. Suffering from a serious case of culinary wanderlust, she has eaten her way clear around the globe. She was also a contestant on FOX's MasterChef Season 6 with Gordon Ramsey. Now based in New Orleans, LA she has dedicated herself to time travel (with help from her friends at the Library of Congress), in search of America's long lost foodie favorites.
