Erin joins the decorated lineage of women chefs in Cambridge and is proud to count Urban Hearth among the small number of acclaimed woman-owned and led restaurants in the Boston area.
Classically trained at the French Culinary Institute of New York, Erin draws from her professional training under the mentorship of Blue Hill’s Dan Barber, her entrepreneurial skills running a culinary event company, and her extensive instructional experience to create a unique dining experience. Urban Hearth opened its doors in 2016 and through Erin’s stewardship quickly established itself as one of Boston’s best-kept secrets with a loyal following.
Throughout her career, Erin has been guided by a simple concept; that there is much to be learned and joy to be had when we gather around the table together. She diligently applies this philosophy beyond the dining table to her relationships with local farmers and producers, her team, and her neighborhood community alike; bringing responsibility and care towards every step in the food system.
Originally from the Blue Ridge mountain town of Floyd, Virginia, Erin calls Cambridge home where she has lived with her husband and two sons since 2008 and is deeply engaged in the city’s vibrant community.
