About Erin
A “chef at heart”, Erin Barker’s passion for food and love of teaching swayed her first attempts to change her career and led her instead to the Natural Cookery School, which she acknowledges may have unconsciously always been her goal in life. Her experience of volunteering with food-sharing initiative Food Not Bombs and creating the Sweet Lilac Deli, a takeaway at a health food cooperative in Vermont, confirmed to her that food was her natural path in life. But it was not until she attended catering college that she realised that what she really wanted was to be a chef.

However, being a vegan, she was doubtful at first that her dream of becoming a chef could ever become a reality. Happily, one of her tutors, having herself studied at the Culinary Institute of America, was also a vegan and together they went on to establish Sparks, an award-winning vegan restaurant outside San Francisco, where Erin learned to apply her foundation in cooking to natural, vegetarian food. Erin’s philosophy is not so much food’s journey from ‘farm to fork’ as it’s progress from ‘plot to plate’. Her teaching brings together the experience of her worldwide travels, deep love of food and her keenness for sustainability, inspiring her students to explore and cook with creative confidence locally sourced, seasonal food that is both delicious and wonderfully healthy.

Student quotes
"The day and recipes the cooking and Erin was fabulous. Erin catered for my soya intolerances really well too. The food tasted out of this world. I was surprised I could learn how to cook such lovely food so quickly. It was fabulous to meet some of the other students. Erin made the day fun and informative. I would highly recommend it."
Nita

 "I love the event, it was my pleasure to met Mary and the other girls. Spending the day with like-minded people is always great. Cooking with Erin was a huge pleasure too. I've been professional cook for years but had no experience with that type of vegan cooking, so it was really inspiring. Coming back with the whole lot of recipes which we cooked is so helpful. Now I learn about a lot different spices and how to incorporate them in my cooking."
Boyana

"I thoroughly enjoyed it, Erin made the whole experience really pleasurable. I loved her knowledge of the seasonal ingredients, cheats on how the professionals get these dishes to taste really good, where to source quality ingredients and where to source non toxic non-stick cookware.  I loved that she gave us handouts of the receipes so we could take notes as we went along, I liked that she also sent them through electronically so we could share them with out clients. She also gave as an added bonus of her cheat sheet on sprouting! I loved the fact that everything was measured out and that we were encouraged to taste as we went along, the meal at the end was also a very nice social experience, and no washing up! Mary also did a really nice intro at the beginning too to seasonal foods, what was in season and why these foods were beneficial at that time of the year"
