I was born and raised on a dairy farm in Alsace-Lorraine, France. I learned to cook watching my mother and grandmother whip up the family specialties. ;Growing up on a farm, with fresh produce, fruit trees, poultry livestock and other fine foods, I have developed a passion for quality cuisine.; The organic food trend is nothing new to me and my parents are still tending to their garden the same way they did it 40 years ago.
For years, I was an executive working for a multinational company. My work took me around the world, opening my taste buds to exotic and international cuisine. As a hobby, I spent much of my time trying out new recipes on friends and family. Then, one day, it struck me - why not cook for a living? Food has always been a passion of mine and I am constantly looking for new trends in cooking and obtaining training as needed. Food is also a vehicle to unleash my creative side.
I am professionally trained and I have worked in some of the best fine-dining restaurants in the DC area and in France. I would be honored to bring the talent and quality I have acquired to your table.
I am ServSafe certified and I am also a proud member of the American Personal and Private Chef Association.
