Meet Deanna Richardson, Chef Erin French Mother
Meet Deanna Richardson, mother of Chef Erin French. Deanna who was a lifelong educator became a support system in Erin’s lowest point of her life which was after her divorce from her ex-husband Todd French. Todd and Erin were co-founders of Lost Kitchen.
But, Erin lost everything from her job to her apartment and her son. She had contemplated suicide. Erin wanted to believe that her husband was a “good person” but that wasn’t the case.
Now, after closing the original “Lost Kitchen,” Todd is working as a designer and a builder. He solely owned French & Webb. He met his partner Peter Webb while working as a teacher at “The Landing School” in Arundel, Maine.
The last we checked, Todd’s company was repairing Sequoia, and Kathy Pickering, Belfast’s harbormaster. His works have also been featured in several documentaries including “NY40 MARILEE: Restoration of a Herreshoff Classic” by Alison Langley Films.
Deanna with her experience working with troubled children begged her daughter to get help. She stayed with her to make sure she ate, was safe, and slept. They worked out a rating scale of 1 to 10, a 10 meant she felt good. Her depression became worse and had to attend the rehabilitation center in Chicago.
A month after returning, Erin borrowed $5000 from friends and family and bought a 1965 Airstream trailer. She lived in the Airstream for more than a year. She started her restaurant in Maine and has now learned what it is like to start from zero and then assemble things using only what’s at hand.
Now, Erin is married to her husband Michael Dutton. Michael is working as the media advisor to her and her brand: The Lost Kitchen. He is working as the executive producer of The Lost Kitchen.
Michale has been handling affairs as a co-founder/managing partner at 6ccMedia, a content strategy, and production company, as of January 2018. He previously worked for Associated Press, Mesmerise Global, and Matterport.
In 2018 Mother’s Day, Erin posted on Facebook, “Happy Mother’s Day!!! Mom and I are celebrating at Young’s Lobster Pound per usual. (Always reaching for more butter!) Antiquing and greenhouse shopping to follow! Sending you to love from Maine!!”.
