Executive Chef
Liza Hotel du Village

Liza began her career at just 14 in a New Jersey Country Club as a prep cook. This started the great passion for the food and service industry. Managing Emeril’s Italian Table and planning events for up to 80 guests cultivated her desire to create a train, mentor, and development program for the staff to grow with these events and appreciate the passion that goes into a single plate. She is most proud of booking and planning a James Beard Celebrity Chef Tour dinner working with many JB Award winners and nominees. Liza is more honored than words can say to have the privilege to work side by side with Hotel du Village team.
