Chef Marlene was really amazing! We had a great experience learning French cuisine from her. Not only that all the courses were delicious, she also told us insight story behind one of the dish. This was a bridal shower event and the bride really loved the experience and time spent together cooking with her girlfriends. Will recommend to anyone who is looking for a bonding/ teamwork event.

Chef Travels to You

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.
