Elizabeth Carty was born in Ireland but has spent most of her adult life abroad. She has had a lifelong interest in food, owing her initial palate development to her mother, whom she describes as a fine cook with a modest repertoire. Later, during her time living in London, Greece and Dubai, she was introduced to a wide array of cuisine styles, which inform her cooking today.

She returned to Ireland with her son in 2000.
