About Me


I’m the only Layla Schlack on the internet. As senior editor at Wine Enthusiast magazine, I deal primarily with food, entertaining, cocktails, spirits and products, in addition to some wine here and there, as you might expect.

Previously, I’ve been a food and craft freelancer; senior editor at Fine Cooking; senior (/managing, in practice) editor at United’s magazine, Hemispheres; and a copy editor at The Eagle-Tribune publishing company. I also copy edited at In Touch for just long enough to know that I’m not cut out for the entertainment world.

Other areas of interest and expertise are my dog, my cat, knitting, DIY on my homely suburban house (check me out on Apartment Therapy), co-organizing The Food Writers’ Workshop and books books books.
