About Elizabeth Louise Hatt

Eliz­a­beth joined the GHQ team in Octo­ber 2010 to indulge her pas­sion for writ­ing, ask­ing ques­tions, eat­ing exor­bi­tant amounts of food and meet­ing indus­try celebri­ties, such as the Dough­boy. When ELH isn’t bring­ing you the lat­est news from the fresh cat­e­gories, she likes to bake cup­cakes, ram­ble on her blog, smother her cat with affec­tion, snow­board trails too advanced for her skills and run long dis­tances. Oh, and eat! She eats a lot, mostly cheese!
