We dive into food shrinkage and how it’s impacting cooking at home.  Grocery stores are moving around shelves and merchandise to disguise shortages. Listen to the lengths they are going to so that consumers don’t notice the empty shelves. Like we are stupid, right?

No one would have believed it two years ago.

About the show:  Food And Travel Nation with Elizabeth Dougherty is the fusion of food and travel. This fresh, compelling nationally-syndicated weekend program includes information for homesteading, traveling, gardening, taste tests, and in a twist, listeners hear what restaurant servers say about customers.

I taught cooking classes, and served as a personal chef for individuals and small parties.  I consulted for restaurants and other food service organizations in menu development as well as cost saving measures. As a freelance writer, I have written hundreds of articles for many different publications.  She created and developed the popular “Food and Travel Nation” page on Facebook.

In 2010, I created a light-hearted, entertaining, informative radio program, “Food And Travel Nation”.  It’s a mix of everything FOOD, including guest interviews, recipes and food/restaurant related features.

With previous memberships in the International Association of Culinary Professionals, the James Beard Foundation and National Restaurant Association, I have tried to keep abreast of the current and ever-changing trends in the culinary world.
