Description: Erin French grew up in Freedom, Maine (population 719), helping her father at the griddle in his diner. An entirely self-taught cook who used cookbooks to form her culinary education, she now helms her acclaimed restaurant, the Lost Kitchen, in a historic mill in the same town, creating meals that draw locals and visitors from around the world to a dining room that feels like an extension of her home kitchen.
No one can bring small-town America to life better than a native, especially when it comes to Maine, one of the country's most off-the-beaten-path states, with an abundant natural bounty that comes from its coastline, rivers, farms, fields, and woods – a cook's dream. Inspired by her lush locale and classic American cooking, Erin crafts recipes such as Applewood-Grilled Spring Chicken, Whole-Roasted Trout with Parsnip and Herb Hash, Maine Shrimp Rolls, Corned Brisket New England Dinner, Ramp and Fiddlehead Fried Rice, and Rhubarb Spoon Cake.
Erin's food has been called "brilliant in its simplicity and honesty" by Food & Wine, and it is exactly this pure approach that makes her style of cooking so appealing – and so easy to embrace at home, wherever you live.
