MEET OUR TEAM
Food is Love. At least in the house where Amy grew up. So many of her happiest memories involve food, from long-distance phone conversations with her grandmother about Lebanese-inspired recipes to standing next to her mother, hands in ground beef, learning the coveted secret to the perfect meatball. Still today, one of Amy's greatest pleasures is feeding people, especially her family, good food. For Amy, good means cooked from scratch, using fresh, whole ingredients grown nearby. In her home cooking, her professional life working with Vermont Food Education Every Day, and now at Richmond Community Kitchen, Amy places the highest value on using ingredients that have integrity to prepare meals with love. She can't wait to share them with you!
Although Erin's life revolves around food now, her love of cooking and sharing food didn't start until her late 20s. Once that switch was flipped, though, she was off! Since moving to Vermont in 2009, she's worked in a cheese cave, chocolate shop, test kitchen, and more, and one of her greatest joys is trying and tweaking new recipes, then forcing her friends to eat them. (They're almost always desserts and they almost always taste good.) Her relationship with food is much like relationships with anything- constantly evolving- and she's looking forward to seeing where it goes.
