I know so many of you have been keeping up with the culinary and life adventures of Erin French here on our website over the past couple years.
What a story! From her restaurant, The Lost Kitchen, in Belfast, ME … to losing her restaurant in a divorce … to buying a Airstream and taking her kitchen on the road … to reopening The Lost Kitchen in her hometown of Freedom, ME … to a book deal. And now it seems Food & Wine Magazine thinks Erin’s story is a great one, too. Check out this wonderful article from the March issue about Erin’s emotional journey to success.
The Heartbreaking Story Behind The Lost Kitchen, an Incredible New Restaurant in Freedom, Maine
Two years ago, chef Erin French lost almost everything. Then, in Freedom, Maine, she started anew. Here, recipes from her brilliant restaurant.
To eat at the lost kitchen, you first have to find it. From the mid-coast town of Belfast, Maine, drive 17 miles inland through woods and rolling farmland on a two-lane country road. Watch closely or you’ll miss the sign for Freedom. Take a quick left on Main Street, and there’s The Mill at Freedom Falls—The Lost Kitchen’s once crumbling, now beautifully renovated home. Cross a narrow bridge over a rushing stream, and you’re there.
Congratulations Erin. We are all so very proud of you!
