Chef Marlène took great care of my team during our team event. We cooked a delicious and very hearty meal, traditional French style, talking with Marlène about her experience with different foods. It was a very intimate session, with all 5 of us cooking at the same time (no boring moments!) and learning. Don't worry that there's no location - Marlène will find a great place, included in the cost. In our case, we cooked in a real restaurant's kitchen, and we had the whole place to ourselves! This was very cool. Marlène was very accommodating of food preferences, although you might need to tell her if you are particularly inexperienced with cooking: I think if your group isn't able to do basic things like chopping vegetables or knowing how to sautee, etc, she'd need to know. Overall, a great experience, I have only good things to say about Chef Marlène!

Chef Marlene was amazing -- Personable, witty, and extremely knowledgable. She was also very confident in us and had us execute on 100% of the recipes. The menu was fancy, yet approachable and we were impressed with the results! Would highly recommend her class and her skill. Wonderful Saturday treat!

In France, food is a religion. Before becoming a chef, I grew up in France, cooking with my mother and father. I love learning about new ingredients, traveling and sharing my passion with my students. My experience stems from high-end restaurants in London, as well as being a private caterer and cooking instructor. What you will learn with me is not what you find in the books, but what my whole family cooks everyday.
