Sarah Heard has a strong passion for food, starting with the dirt where the food was cultivated. She began cooking in Austin in 2007 & has held positions at The Mansion at Judges Hill, Parkside Projects, & La Condesa. She believes that integrity & respect for all parts of the process that bring food to your plate are essential to a good meal & to the guest experience. In 2017 Sarah & her partner, Nathan Lemley, purchased Foreign & Domestic, Austin from founder Ned Elliott. The two are now focused on bold, cohesive flavors, adventurous wine, & pure hospitality. When she is not at work she is raising chickens, goats, & gardening on a small plot of land with her 9 year old daughter.
“We pride ourselves on taking the odd bits of the animal or plant, making them approachable, & focusing on executing them well so that when you do try them, it is a wonderful experience.”
