Erin Wade is a chef-turned-attorney-turned-chef-again. Erin's love for cooking was sparked by her father's homemade mac and cheese and her mother's vast cookbook collection. While receiving her undergraduate degree at Princeton, Erin was a restaurant critic for the Daily Princetonian and apprenticed at night in the kitchen of a local French restaurant. Upon graduating, Erin moved to New York where she worked as a line cook and in pastry before attending law school at Berkeley. After practicing law for a year, Erin came to her senses and decided to return to her love of cooking by writing freelance food articles and opening Homeroom with Allison. She lives in Oakland with her husband Uri and daughter Ellie, her favorite cooking partners.
