Liz is a Chicago native who has been living and working in Mexico City for the past 9 years. Growing up in a family with an intense passion for food, Liz felt immediately at home in México, and fell in love with its cuisine. She studied Mexican food rituals and culture at the School of Anthropology and History in Mexico City and is currently brushing up on her Mexican history as she studies to become a certified tour guide. In addition to her studies, Liz has built her knowledge of Mexican food through her endless search for delicious food stands, discussions with local Mexican cooks, and her passion for replicating recipes in her home kitchen. She also documents her adventures with Mexican cuisine on her food blog and works on food mapping projects within Mexico City.
