Food and travel have always been a big part of my life.

I am a French Canadian based in Montreal but I never say no to traveling!

I had the chance to visit many countries in Europe, Asia, Africa and of course North and South America.

After several years working in digital communications, I decided to make these passions my full-time job.

A foodie and a compulsive market visitor, I spend a good deal of my time in the kitchen replicating all the new dishes and flavors discovered elsewhere (sometimes with a lot of trial and error, I have to admit).

This is also why I constantly seek to improve myself, from a workshop to a culinary course, to a wine tasting.

My goal is to continue to learn and improve myself so that I can share with you the pleasure of cooking and discovering fabulous destinations here in Quebec and elsewhere.

Don’t hesitate to subscribe to the monthly newsletter to receive our most recent articles and thematic reports directly to your inbox.

And come join me on social media, I love talking to you!
