Lia has written hundreds of recipes and dozens of articles for national magazines like Cooking Light (where she is a Contributor and Media Spokesperson), Prevention, Health and Fitness. She's appeared live on FOX television and her work has been featured on CNN.com, MSNBC.com and WebMD.
Now Lia is furthering her goal-showing people how to connect to themselves, others and the earth we share through the enjoyment of food that's healthy for both our bodies and the planet-in new ways. In the works are a cookbook, NOURISH: Recipes and Strategies for Feeding Body and Soul, and a rich-content website and social hub, www.nourishnetwork.com, launching this spring.
Lia also continues to help food and wine companies find their voices as a branding and messaging consultant. She holds an MBA from University of Florida, a BA from Tulane University, and has studied at the Sorbonne in Paris and the Culinary Institute of America at Greystone in Napa Valley. She recently finished writing her first novel, I Land Home; a culinary odyssey in the vein of Like Water for Chocolate meets the modern Slow Food movement that takes readers from Corfu, Greece to both coasts of America. Lia lives in Healdsburg, CA with her husband, Christopher, and daughter, Noemi.
