More About Liz Scott

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Alexandra "Alex" Scott was born to Liz and Jay Scott in Manchester, Connecticut on January 18, 1996, the second of four children.Shortly before her first birthday, Alex was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, a type of childhood cancer. On her first birthday, the doctors informed Alex's parents that if she beat her cancer it was doubtful that she would ever walk again. Just two weeks later, Alex slightly moved her leg at her parents' request to kick. This was the first indication of who she would turn out to be-a determined, courageous, confident and inspiring child with big dreams and big accomplishments.By her second birthday, Alex was crawling and able to stand up with leg braces. She worked hard to gain strength and to learn how to walk. She appeared to be beating the odds, until the shattering discovery within the next year that her tumors had started growing again. In the year 2000, the day after her fourth birthday, Alex received a stem cell transplant and informed her mother, "when I get out of the hospital I want to have a lemonade stand." She said she wanted to give the money to doctors to allow them to "help other kids, like they helped me." True to her word, she held her first lemonade stand later that year with the help of her older brother and raised an amazing $2,000 for "her hospital."While bravely battling her own cancer, Alex and her family continued to hold yearly lemonade stands in her front yard to benefit childhood cancer

Liz Scott was born in 1957.

A Lifesaver - Set me FREE!  Nov 12, 2008
I own Chef Scott's first book on the subject (The Sober Kitchen) and use it daily. I also own this book and use it often. I live with and love a recovering alcoholic, and in support of him have decided not to drink or use myself. As a professional cook I do not keep alcohol in my house or use it in my preparations if I can avoid it (read: not following someone else's recipes at work).

Chef Scott explains the role of alcohol in a particular recipe, and then shows you how to easily and (without missing it!) replace it with fruit juices, tea, cider, even vinegars. Alcohol may have originally been included in the recipe because it contributed "flavor" or "depth,"; many times it is/was just tradition. The truth is that alcohol does not "burn off" or "evaporate" as most of us had assumed our whole lives; much of it remains and it's not necessary to cook with it to make delicious, comforting meals.
Why cook with alcohol when you have kids? Worse, for those in early (and even later) recovery, it can create disturbing cravings and provide unwanted triggers. I have become very sensitive to the taste since I stopped drinking almost 4 years ago and do not enjoy it where it is included in savory or pastry items. Now thanks to Liz Scott I even know to ask if and how it is used in food when ordering out - it takes the pressure off everyone at the table: Something you may not have thought of if you are part of a recovering addict's support system.

Since I have implemented Chef Scott's tips (she includes extensive scientific and historical research as well as personal anecdotes throughout both books, BTW) my cooking has reached a new level. Any recipe can be remade non-alcoholic with her instruction, and it takes the worry out of something as basic as our need for nourishment. The Sober Kitchen gives you the framework for a non-alcoholic pantry and refrigerator. It's surprising how many places alcohol exists in our food (preparation, recipes, restaurant menu "classics", even condiments)and how unconsciously accepting our society is of its use and presence.

I highly recommend The Sober Kitchen and Sober Celebrations. Sober Celebrations provides menus by various holidays, and can help pull together your sober (and delicious!) entertaining possibilities into one invaluable resource. It puts the power to choose what you expose yourself to in your food back where it belongs - in YOUR hands. I'm grateful to Chef Scott for the heightened awareness she has created in me. This is a fine addition to any cook's/chef's library.
For Those in Recovery and Those That Prefer Living Alcohol Free  Dec 15, 2007
I was recently involved in organizing a recovery walk in Kirkland, Washington and had the pleasure of meeting Liz Scott and purchasing her book Sober Celebrations and Sober Kitchen. She is an amazing chef and an amazing women in recovery who believes that those that don't need or want alcohol in their lives should not have to give up the joy of food, cooking and entertaining. Because there were no other books of this type available when she was early in recovery, she did a lot of research on how to substitute out alcohol in her cooking and catering business without losing the flavor and fun. AS someone who is not in recovery herself, but has a medical condition that makes alcohol use detrimental to her health, I was thrilled to find a cookbook that I could use myself.
For anyone who is in recovery, doesn't drink alcohol, or is restricted diet wise, not only are these great recipes but the books are filled with great side bars and information that really helps me to understand the role of alcohol in foods, preparation, entertaining, etc. I couldn't recommend this book any higher. The same for Sober Kitchen. They are both must haves' Thanks LIz for your fondness of food and concern for those of us who love to eat and cook but felt like we had to give up so many dishes because of the alcohol. You are as much a chemist as a chef!
