Leslie Almeida, Founder & Editor-in-Chief

Leslie J Almeida - 300

Leslie is the person to blame for the existence of PROPAGANDA New Orleans. She apologizes in advance.

An early adopter of “the internets”, she somehow managed to carve a career for herself in media, writing about food and dining in New Orleans, and coordinating events for her social dining group, NOLA Eats. Some of her print work includes contributions to the Our Home, Louisiana Seafood Cookbook and New Orleans Living magazine. Online, she has written for Food Network’s CityEatsForbes Travel Guide’s, and has been featured on CNN’s She has also been featured in local print publications such as The Times-Picayune, alt weekly Gambit, and New Orleans City Business as an authority on varying topics. Leslie’s expertise has been called upon as a panelist at the 2012 New Orleans Entrepreneur Week and WWL-TV’s The 504, and has served as a judge at several culinary competitions. Her name can be found attached to other projects, such as New Orleans Gourmet television program, of which she was Co-Executive Producer.

When not editing articles, tweaking the website or cursing her laptop, she spends time with her husband, two kids and two cats, who are all very, very tired of listening to her curse at her laptop.
