Elizabeth Ashiru

Food and Beverage Manager at Lagos (@omowunmiabefe)

During her undergrad days, Lizzy's room was the go-to place to get fed... Soon, she realised not just her love for cooking but also the process; from prepping, to plating, to seeing the satisfied look of a well-fed guest. It has been a huge leap from hosting in her uni dorm room to managing the first Heineken bar in West Africa. But her love of flavour and searching for great tastes led her to Bature Brewery. Now she is the F&B manager for Bature Brewery.
