Erin was born and raised in Vancouver, BC. She is a committed chef, professionally based in Vancouver, working closely with local farmers and purveyors to produce the best experience for her guests. Her passion for cooking has led her to accept positions in Europe, the United States, and Canada, including cooking at James Beard House and specialty cheese houses in Amsterdam and Whistler. Staging as often as her schedule allows, she continues to seek out new techniques and experiences while retaining a little impish whimsy in her food. Erin is a cook raised by the environment she grew up in, and is influenced by the world she discovers around her. She passionately executes to the best of her ability, and approaches food with a fun and playful quality.
She is inspired by the local seasons, ingredients, purveyors, mentors, friends, artists, and musicians of her hometown of Vancouver and by her travels abroad.
