I landed in Toronto, Canada 7 years ago with one piece of luggage and full of dreams.
My culinary roots are definitely from the centre of France, where the traditional cuisine formed my palate with a taste for locally sourced ingredients. I began my formal education in Paris working in various large establishments including Hotel Costes.
During this time I acquired 3 diplomas in French cuisine and a certificate in gastronomic excellence.
My path then led me to St Maarten, my first international experience where I learned new management techniques. My work in London UK, at a restaurant called Aubaine, helped me adapt my French cooking to the British taste. In Toronto, working for Le Paradis helped me understand the food culture of the city, and at Le Baratin, I want to share with you my passion of food and l’art de vivre, the art of life, in a French way.
