I am a passionate traveller who offer to share my French culture with people visiting the French Riviera. I speak French, English, German and Italian. I am talkative, funny and full of energy even if enjoying the art of "la sieste" (French nap after lunch, ideally under a pine tree listening to the cicadas song!) is also one of my favorite activities. I really love meeting people from abroad and give them an opportunity to discover and experience a "real" taste of French life.

It was really fun and unique to be able to learn how to make madeleines from someone who knows them best. Being able to spend time with Karina in her home was a memorable experience that we really enjoyed. And they were delicious!

Oh, my dear Madeleine! The experience was super great! I’ve changed my reservation time in the same day morning of the session, but Karina is very kind and we’ve had our baking time on a lovely Friday afternoon alternatively. Although there’s only me, she still hosted me, for which I’m so grateful! Karina prepared two different recipe, both are so good and you can experience both! She gave instructions and let me to experience the whole session and are always on the side for help. Karina is very talkative and lovely lady, we have talked about a lot of different things, travel, books, French culture and my hometown as well. I’ve also tried Karina’s chestnuts cake, which is also a masterpiece! After the baking session, Karina also drove me to the bus station, which is so touching. Overall, I would say it was a fascinating and must try experience in Nice.

My partner and I were looking for a baking activity to do together while in France, and we loved Karina's Madeline experience! She was an excellent host, very welcoming and communicative. She invited us into her home and made us feel at ease. We had a great time chatting about our lives and our cultures while learning to make delicious Madelines! We would highly recommend any traveler to visit with Karina, she was a great help and very interesting.
