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.  I created and developed the popular “Food and Travel Nation” page on Facebook.

In 2010, I created a light-hearted, entertaining, informative radio program, “Food Nation Radio”.  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.
