HI, I'M LIZZY.
A FOOD CULTURE
WRITER/CONSULTANT

I help mission-driven food entrepreneurs create modern, intelligent brands rooted in culture and history. I also tell stories.

WHAT I BRING TO THE TABLE

If it involves food, I either know something about it or know where to find it

I live and breathe stories. I understand words and how to make  language beautiful. 

Food is the most personal of things, and the personal is political.

Lizzy was invited to speak to my Food and Culture course. I had assigned her article "On Colonial Nostalgia and Food in Fantasy Writing." She was great, and students learned so much! I think what was most captivating for our class was her impressive knowledge about so many different aspects of food, and her ability to make connections to social, political, and cultural issues.
