Osayi Endolyn is a writer, producer, curator, and consultant, whose storytelling centers food and culture. A changemaker and thought leader, she spearheads discourse ranging from editorial direction to the politics of dining.

A James Beard Award-winner for her contributions in writing and visual media, Osayi’s writing is featured in the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, Time, Eater, Food & Wine, Condé Nast Traveler, Travel + Leisure, the Wall Street Journal, and the Oxford American. Her essays appear in multiple collections and her commentary is featured on Netflix's Chef’s Table and Ugly Delicious, and Hulu's The Next Thing You Eat. Past consulting clients include Gastronomical by Ghetto Gastro, Meredith Corp, Pepsi Dig In, Museum of Food and Drink, and the Blue Note Jazz Festival. She is the writer of Ghetto Gastro Presents: Black Power Kitchen, and with Marcus Samuelsson The Rise: Black Cooks and the Soul of American Food. Her own book on restaurants and dining culture is forthcoming.

Osayi earned her BA in French from UCLA where she minored in Afro American studies, and her MFA in writing from the Savannah College of Art and Design. In 2019, she received the UC Berkeley-11th Hour Food & Farming Journalism Fellowship. That same year, Eater invited her to guest edit the inaugural Eater Young Gun section with stories focused on newcomers to the industry. In 2018, Southern Living named her one of 30 Women Moving Southern Food Forward. She is on the board of trustees for the Edna Lewis Foundation and Radical Xchange, and she advised PepsiCo’s inaugural Dig In initiative in support of Black-owned restaurants. A second-generation Californian and former resident of the South, she lives in New York.
