April 5, 2017, Hatfield, MA – Tucked into a 250-plus year-old renovated barn in the small agricultural town of Hatfield, MA, The Lisa Ekus Group makes a lot of dreams come true. As a renowned boutique agency specializing in the Culinary Arts, today it is celebrating 35 years in business, providing a variety of publishing and culinary services. Says owner/founder Lisa Ekus, “We support the careers of culinary professionals around the globe. We find high-profile publishing, media and endorsement opportunities for our clients. I love the creative opportunities of building connections and careers.”
The Lisa Ekus Group, aka TLEG, is a now mother-daughter run business that employs three other women. Together, the team runs every aspect of the business, from managing over 150 clients around the world to booking consultations and media training, as well as connecting large food brands with the agency’s talent. As Literary agents they represent and sell dozens of books each year to the world’s leading publishers. TLEG has a storied history, one that began in 1982.
Originally as Lisa Ekus Public Relations, it was the first PR agency in the United States devoted solely to publicizing cookbooks, chefs, and food products. As the agency grew the focus broadened, and it’s now a full-service culinary agency “representing a world of culinary talent” that spans first-time cookbook authors to seasoned chefs, as well as professional food writers, bloggers, and YouTube/TV personalities. Services include literary agenting, talent representation, branding consultations, culinary career consulting, media training, and an a la carte publishing division.
The Lisa Ekus Group team is one built on effective communication, effortless synchronicity, and a great passion for what they do—supporting books, authors, and the culinary world. Together, they work creatively to further their clients’ careers, always keeping their local community in mind.
