Episode 91: Chef Erin Rowe knows the Ozark Culinary Scene Better Than Anyone Else

About the Show:

We recently sat down with Chef Erin Rowe, Author of the book An Ozark Culinary History, and Founder of The Ozark Culinary Tours. Based in Bella Vista, Chef Erin knows her way around the Northwest Arkansas culinary scene. 

It took Chef Erin a year and a half of painstaking research to compile over 400 Recipes that are included in the book. Along with those recipes are timeless stories that are right at home here in the Ozarks. For those of you that may have grown up in Northwest Arkansas some of these stories will bring back fond memories of Sunday dinner with Grandma and helping out in the kitchen during family get-togethers.

In addition to her book, Chef Erin decided that she wanted to expose as many people as possible to all of the great places to eat here in Northwest Arkansas. This desire to bring her book to life spawned the creation of the Ozark Culinary Tours. These tours visit a number of restaurants along with places that have historical food significance.  

From Arkansas to Maui and back Chef Erin Rowe has done it all.  Learn more about her and her love for Northwest Arkansas on this episode of the I am Northwest Arkansas podcast.
