Having grown up in numerous countries I was lucky enough to try many types of foods from a very young age.

Passionate about food and traveling I went on to study International Hospitality and Tourism Management at the University of Surrey in the UK, where I quickly joined the Food & Wine Society.

I was lucky to start my career in a beautiful Parisian palace, where each time I would walk by the kitchens, I would be fascinated by the food it produced.

In 2008, with my sister and father’s input, I founded a translation service website mainly specialized in menu translations: www.menu-alacarte.com

After 4 years of building this business I consider myself lucky.  Through the various translations I produce I get to discover various dishes, recipes and techniques that often inspire me in my daily cooking.

This blog is to let you into my kitchen…and to exchange ideas and personal recipes.
