This is one of the most beautifully written memoirs I've ever had the pleasure of reading. Erin French is the owner and chef of a famous restaurant, The Lost Kitchen, located in a small town in Maine. Foodies from all over the country travel to the little town of Freedom, Maine, to eat a meal at The Lost Kitchen. But Erin has walked a long and very difficult road to reach the happy and successful life she now enjoys. She began working in her parent's diner as a child, which ignited her love of feeding people. Then came single parenthood, a very difficult marriage and a doctor who thought giving her lots of pills was the answer to all her problems. All the while, she kept cooking. In her memoir she talks in detail about all the struggles she faced and how she eventually overcame them all to reach a life that includes a wonderful child, a happy new marriage and an incredibly successful restaurant.
