French born, living accross Europe for more than 20 years with my family, I 've been living in Stockholm since 2012 after Amsterdam, London, Bruxelles and Rome. I really appreciate this new" home". I am a decoration seamstress during day time and a cook at night for my family and friends. I love cooking and trying new recipies and sharing them. As a matter of fact, I've been writing articles for the French speaking association, Stockholm Accueil for few years. Cooking is a fantastic way for traveling around the world everyday. I also enjoy a good book or a long walk in the nature with my camera. When I read about viz eat, I thought it was a great concept, I could share my love for food, meet new interesting people and be your chief for a night. I'm fluent In French, Italian and English. I can understand Swedish and have a basic conversation. My husband speaks French and English. My house is on the edge of Central Stockholm, on a typical residential aera. It 's easily reach by public transport or taxi.
I'm in my fifties
What to expect at Marine's place
I cannot recommend Marine's but hospitality enough. Her hand made horderves start out the evening with a bang while her lamb shoulder was the best I had ever had and she made a rhubarb/strawberry sorbet that was heavenly. The only things surpassing the food was Marine's hospitality and the great conversation by her and two other guests from Sweden, Ingrid and Eva (I hope I spelled their names correctly). If you have an opportunity to attend one of Marine's dinners, be sure to take it!
It was a very nice, delicious and entertaining experience! It was a four dishes dinner accompanied with excellent wines (chosen by Marines husband Greg, a real connoisseur). The gastro theme was french cooking with a touch of Sweden. It was my best experience of Eatwith so far. I know it was the debut of Marina on Eeatwith, and definitely a successful one. Moreover, we formed an entertaining team of five: my friend, me and another guest, plus Marine and her husband. The conversation was vivid and witty. We left with a smile.
