About your host Odile: "I discovered my passion for food when I was 15 years old, watching my mother and grandmother transform produce from the garden into simple yet delicious dishes. They passed their recipes onto me, along with a few tips and tricks, and a joy for sharing meals around the table. This is the rich heritage I in turn wish to bring to my guests."

I am a mother of three and professional in the food sector. First, I worked for a company with organic products, then in distribution for Reflets de France for Carrefour.

I also like to propose some cooking classes at my home. My guests are usually foreigners living in Paris, people who share a general interest in food, and tourists who are looking for an authentic culinary experience “at home”.
You are welcome in my apartment and in my kitchen!
Passionnée de cuisine depuis l’âge de 15 ans, j’ai toujours aimé regarder cuisiner ma mère et ma grand-mère. Excellentes cuisinières, ce sont les produits du potager, du verger et de la basse-cour qu’elles transforment alors en plats simples mais savoureux. Tradition orale des recettes, gestes précis, astuces, goût du travail bien fait et amour à partager à travers les bons petits plats , c’est tout cet héritage que j’ai envie à mon tour de transmettre.
Adulte, j’oriente ma carrière professionnelle dans l’agroalimentaire. J’ai travaillé pour le compte d’une société de produits biologiques puis dans la grande distribution avec la mise au point des produits Reflets de France pour Carrefour.
Aujourd’hui, maman de 3 enfants, c’est tout naturellement que je propose avec grand plaisir des cours de cuisine à la maison.
Mon public : traditionnellement des étrangers vivant à Paris, curieux de la cuisine française, et parfois même des touristes de passage voulant vivre une expérience culinaire originale « comme à la maison ».
Je vous reçois dans mon appartement, dans ma cuisine.
