Erin MacDonald

Hailing from the rugged Canadian island of Newfoundland, Chef Erin is a Native American of the Mi’kmaq Qalipu Tribe (Pronounced: ha-lee-boo, Meaning: Caribou). As a Native American it should come as no surprise that her introduction to the kitchen was with wild game, such as caribou and moose, as well as traditionally procured wild produce, berries, mushrooms, and herbs.

Her quest to understand international cuisine took her to the island of Taiwan and then to Dubai, where she was formally trained in classic French culinary techniques. She currently lives in Abu Dhabi, where she has worked for the Canadian hotelier, Fairmont, and at the British culinary superstar Chef Marco Pierre White’s restaurant.

Join Chef Erin in Shifting Sands as she searches for the desert truffle in the fabled Empty Quarter; fishes for barracuda in the Strait of Hormuz; visits the exotic spice island of Zanzibar; explores the hidden souks in the Sultanate of Oman; and discovers the secret delights of the Honey Mountains.
