I am a native of Paris, France and came to Ojai California 16 years ago. My main interest is healthy living and I have a passion for cooking. I am a freelance personal chef and provide culinary services in the Ojai Valley since 2000. My focus is to prepare food that both heals, nourishes and restores the balance in our body whilst making the meal a true festive moment.
I have traveled throughout Europe and the Far East. Some of my favorite destinations are Paris, India, Bali, Burma, Morocco and Japan. When I travel I like to experience the spirit of the people and the country.
In the '80s I went on a long spiritual quest and studied yoga and became a certified yoga teacher. Although I don't teach it anymore I do believe the principles of yoga are essentials in our world.
My guests can expect a relaxed home atmosphere with a flair of exotic and ample greenery all around.
My daughter is just finishing college in L.A. She is my pride and joy. I raised her as a single mom and we have done a lot of traveling together. We are both bilingual and I believe teaching children about the world is the greatest gift one can give them.
I have rescue dogs who are all well behaved and stay mainly in the large yard when guests are in the home. The guest room is a pet free zone so no animals come into that room.
Life is a journey not a destination. Enjoy the moment, respect each other and live in your heart.
