I worked for the largest wine distributor (Southern Wines and Spirits) in California, USA, for 12 years, in the on-sale market, consulting and selling wines to hotels and restaurants, where I had an extensive background in tasting, pairing and promoting wines. Since moving to France in April 2009, Navigating French Wines has been a wonderful opportunity to use my wine knowledge in helping the expat community, tourists, and even French locals who want to speak English, to learn about French wines. Additionally, I have spent many years cooking and preparing meals, learning from creative chefs from all over the world. It is my pleasure to dine with people showing them the wines and foods France, and sharing wine knowledge that helps in understanding how to buy and enjoy French wines, and creating special dishes for your dining pleasure! I hope you will join me soon for an experience you soon won't forget!

What to expect at CAMILLA's place
This was our first Eatwith experience and we really enjoyed it, so much so that we may end up skipping dnner! Camilla is very knowledgeable we really enjoyed the great food and conversation. The trip through the market was lovely and we hope to go back there again soon. Thank you for a wonderful morning and afternoon! J & T, Toronto
Dining with Camilla is more than just a great dinner experience in a Parisian apartment. Camilla can not only prepare you an interesting, varied, and delicious dining experience, but she will match each course with the perfect wine. Not only are you getting a taste of Paris, you will learn why she has chosen each wine especially for you and your choices. I drop everything and immediately say "yes" when I get an invitation from Camilla. If she is opening her home to you, it is to welcome you and give you an evening to remember. She does nothing half way and is a wonderful hostess. Thing that is the most appealing about this experience is that you truly feel special.
