Born to French parents living in Morocco, Marie-Françoise was raised on an orange citrus & olive tree plantation.

We spent our summers in Switzerland and there we were allowed into the kitchen during the preparation of afternoon snacks and desserts made with seasonal fruits: berry tarts– cherry or Mirabelle Clafoutis– apricot, apple and pear preserves and marmelade. madeleines, butter shortbread, marble cake, etc.

The beginning of my cooking experience was in the beauce region– I was 10 years old. Everyday meals for 12 people had to be prepared and my mother needed help. I was in charge of dessert: a large kitchen at my disposal and no guidelines. I was free to experiment with anything and everything!

Our home became a veritable family “guest house.” I became my mother’s assistant with pleasure!

At age 18/20, I went to study languages abroad and took advantage of these travels to study the cuisines of other cultures. Back home, I tried them out at these family celebrations and they were a hit!

In London, I discovered Asian and Indian cuisines and the influence of certain spices. I became fascinated with spices.

Finally returning to France, I created 8 years ago (along with my husband – the designer), a brand of fine culinary products.

My passion is combining my love for international cultural exchange, and the seemingly simple yet profound experience of creating and sharing the gift of FOOD.
