‘The Lost Kitchen’ Chef Now has a Cookbook
‘The Lost Kitchen’ is a restaurant in Freedom. I have not eaten there. But, I have heard A LOT about it. You see…chef Erin French created a place that is so desirable getting a reservation can be a challenge. And now…she has a cookbook, ‘The Lost Kitchen: Recipes and a Good Life Found in Freedom, Maine‘!
I love cookbooks.
Talking about the most spectacular cookbook: @thelostkitchen. It strikes the perfect balance of including creative recipes that are actually relatively simple to make (many are SO simple, but things I'd never be able to throw together without a recipe list), intricate dishes for when you want to wow a crowd, a look at farming + food in Maine, and stunning photography. If you caught my Instastories this weekend you may have seen that I made Erin's Rhubarb Spoon Cake. It's everything and more and you should make it, too! The recipe and more in today's blog post!
As for the restaurant, French cooks a set dinner for about 40 people on four nights a week for 8 months a year. I remember that in when she opened reservations for 2017 she has THOUSANDS of calls! Clearly, she is doing something right!
But seriously…look at this place! Can you imagine what it looks like in the fall?
Look at this food! OHHH the food…
TODAY is the day!!! #thelostkitchencookbook is officially available at your favorite bookseller! We poured our hearts into the pages and hope you love this book as much as we loved making it. Thrilled to be celebrating at Left Bank Books in Belfast tonight at 7pm! Spreading our love for the most special place in the world, Maine! ❤️ photo by @nicole_franzen
Maybe…someday…I will get whisked away on a magical, fairytale like date to ‘The Lost Kitchen’
