01.Elise Dalley's bio
Name: Elise Dalley
Job title: Journalist
Experience/expertise: Here at CHOICE I work with the investigations team to produce longer-style news features about food, nutrition and groceries. Prior to joining CHOICE in November 2011, I studied journalism and law at UTS and wrote from Greece, Indonesia and for a number of local news organisations.
Tell us about your role at CHOICE: My role involves pitching story ideas to our editor, researching, interviewing and writing. This generally means asking questions about the quality of food, the packaging it arrives in, the marketing claims attached to it and the country in which it came from. I also help with the CHOICE social media accounts – tweeting interesting consumer-related stories from around the world and using Facebook to interact with our members.
My favourite test would have to be the champagne/sparkling taste test we conducted for the December/January edition of the magazine. Five experts sampled 60 bottles of champagne and sparkling to find out the best buys on the market today. The perks for the hostess? A lunchtime glass of Bollinger.
