Featured Story - The Hearth Keepers

For years, Aarin Fisher spent a lot of time in the kitchen, stirring her passion for cooking even as she pursued a college degree in English. “I found that I was enjoying cooking for my friends more than I was enjoying the classroom,” she says. Sheepskin in hand, she enrolled in culinary school, moved to Chicago and landed a series of food service positions. As she was discovering her love for the kitchen, a future Lawrence Hall employee was debuting his skills: Dequarian, then age 15, made his first meal, filling the rooms of his west side home with the aroma of fried tilapia and potatoes.
