Erin Rowe was raised in charming Siloam Springs, Arkansas. She attended Maui Culinary Academy but mostly learned by trial and error, cooking her way through the infamous Joy of Cooking. She first wrote about food penning restaurant reviews for Maui No Ka ‘Oi magazine. When not catering house parties and cooking for her adventurous husband, Alex, she can be found eating basil pesto, collecting passport stamps or reading through a British classic over a good cup of coffee.
