Born and raised in Augusta, Georgia, Elizabeth grew up on foods heavy with butter and love. She began cooking as a young child by measuring ingredients with her mother and peeling potatoes for her grandmother’s famed roast beef. She continues to cook for friends and family today and is most known for her red velvet cake. Elizabeth recently received her B.A. in Sociology from Boston College and is very intrigued by the many connections between food and culture. She completed her studies by writing a thesis entitled “‘Tremendous Power’: Southern Women, Southern Cooking, and the Negotiation of Personal Autonomy.”
