As the creator and driving force behind all divisions of Luscious Affairs, her knowledge of hospitality and catering is unparalleled. In the industry for over 25 years, Liz nurtured her enthusiasm and developed her skills at the Cordon Bleu School, UK, and followed this with her Swiss Diploma of Hotel Management, The Blue Mountains International Hotel Management School. Liz is an avid and regular international traveller; she has co-managed tours to Europe over the past 10 years, gaining knowledge and inspiration from some of the world’s top chefs and restaurants. In May of 2011 Liz was the proud recipient of The Blue Mountains International Hotel Management School’s 20-Year Anniversary Entrepreneurship Award.
The Junior Gourmet was published in 2012 and is yet another example of Liz making her own opportunities in an industry that she was truly born for. No less than two months after its publication The Junior Gourmet won the coveted Gourmand World Cookbook Awards in the category of ‘Best Children and Family Cookbook’ in Australia. In February 2013, Liz attended the prestigious award ceremony in Paris, as the cookbook won ‘Gourmand Best In The World’.
