About the Author
"Erin is an overcomer and a risk-taker. She's the kind of person who, when faced with a setback, pushes forward and makes beauty out of hardship. Her story is full of passion and courage, and when you read this book, you will walk away feeling inspired and encouraged in your own life."
--Joanna Gaines, Co-Founder, Magnolia
--Martha Stewart, Founder Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia Women everywhere will respond to Finding Freedom, a story of the triumph of true passion against all odds. With grit, honesty, and lyrical writing, Erin French takes us on her journey: working the line at her father's diner, surviving addiction, toxic relationships, raising her son as a single mother, to finally re-inventing herself as a renowned chef and restaurateur. Finding Freedom is a wild ride, one you won't soon forget.
--Stephanie Danler, bestselling author of Sweetbitter and Stray Erin and I grew up in very different kitchens (an American diner; Chez Panisse), but I recognized so much in her experience: the intimacy and immediacy of a restaurant-as-second-home; the sounds and smells of cooking; the pleasure of bringing joy to people through food. Erin's story is a gritty, sensuous, honest story of finding her own path--with the pursuit of good food as her bellwether.
--Fanny Singer, author of Always Home
