Liz is a recent transplant from NYC and currently resides in Connecticut with her husband and two cats, Oscar and Lulu. She is passionate about the local food movement, helping connect people with what’s on their plates, animal rights and food as medicine. Most weekends she can be found at farmers markets buying produce for dinner that night and chatting up the farmers about what’s in season. She loves trying new food and learning in general.
