But Liz is more than just a spice explorer. Liz is a business mentor, single Mum, advocate for women in business and in her own right, a successful businesswoman with a growing team of staff, working to encourage and support other women to become business owners and leaders. Liz grew her business while raising her two children, focused on creating a range of more than 200 spices to elevate the ordinary to the extraordinary, offering an enriching culinary and cultural journey connecting people to cuisine.
Inspiring home cooks to challenge themselves, Liz created Flavours of the World, a range of delicious and aromatic spice foundations to create memorable meals and taking home cooks on a journey to the far-flung corners of the world, inspired by the spice route, and unlocking new flavour experiences in a simple and affordable way.
