Falling in love is so easy
From my French childhood I inherited a love of cooking and an almost visceral passion for fresh, high quality ingredients.
The years I spent in Africa taught me true hospitality. The gift of spending my adult life in California has been increasing freedom, grounded in French techniques but emboldened by the multi-ethnic richness of the New World.
The result is a colorful cuisine that follows the seasons, centered on the amazing ingredients
grown and raised by small producers who have become my friends.
When you join my table, you are invited to share not only in the food, but also in the friendship.
