Chef Marlene was a wonderful host. She was prompt in her communication, found a lovely site to have the event in, and had an appetizer already prepared for us to munch on as we cooked. We look forward to receiving the recipes and photos from our day! Note: This is a very hands-on experience where the chef will tell you the next few steps, demonstrate if you'd like, and then leave you to it.

Chef Marlene was amazing! This class was an off site for my work team and everything went above and beyond expectations! Chef Marlene was an amazing teacher, the format gave everyone a chance to work together (making for an exceptional team building exercise), and the meal was fantastic! I would definitely recommend to anyone looking to get their team out of the office to do something fun and educational.

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.
