HATFIELD — For Lisa Ekus, the recipe for success as a literary agent promoting cookbook authors takes a mix of commitment to those with whom she works, knowledge of the industry, authenticity, passion and belief in her authors and their work.

“I adore being able to help make dreams come true, to shape someone’s knowledge and expertise and bring it forth to the public,” said the founder and now partner of the Ekus Group. “We offer up a high level of curation in the quality of our projects. Editors know and support this.”
