Liz Williams grew up eating in two great food traditions – New Orleans and Sicily. Founder of National Food & Beverage Foundation, she has written several books, especially about New Orleans food culture. Her latest book is about Creole Sicilians, Nana’s Creole Italian Table. Listen to her podcast, read her Substack newsletter, and read her monthly column in the New Orleans Advocate – all called Tip of the Tongue – about food and drink and culture.
A graduate of Louisiana State University Law Center, she served as a U.S. Army Judge Advocate General. She has served as judge in many cooking competitions and consulted internationally on the food of New Orleans. Travel is an excuse to eat in new places.
