My meals-grandmothers already had guinguettes, I have always cooked, and when I did my job, the idea of ​​this name in their memory came to me naturally. I first started to lead detox courses for 7 years, at the same time as my naturopathy studies. Then, thanks to the fashion world that welcomed me with open arms, I developed my little catering service, restaurants etc ... Everything came very naturally!

 

- Eating healthy, is that a priority? A chance rather! Priority is consciousness in my opinion. If we think a little better about the way of consuming, cooking, eating .. it is already won! I do not have an extremist speech, I do not think that eating healthy must be a priority, nor a reason to feel guilty. I think that in certain situations, you have to let go and take full advantage of the moment. Eating has a real social role. When I am invited, I honor the cuisine of my host whatever it is, but it is obviously possible to combine healthy and convivial food, especially when you receive!
- Do you have any tips for eating good and well when you are in a hurry or you don't know how to cook? I really like to make salads in jars, I start by putting the sauce, an easy base (lentils, rice, quinoa, buckwheat, chickpea ..) then I do vegetable strata, starting with those who stand Better: rapped carrot, cucumber, artichoke, peas, broccoli, apples, etc. and ending for the most fragile (sprouted seeds, spinach shoots, aromatic herbs ... I take it in my bag with a fork, and before Eat it, I shake it like a cocktail!
- Salt or sweet? Roll or sacred! A cookie that comes out of the oven with a pinch of fleur de sel, or a shiitake/kale wok with a net of maple syrup ...
- Your recipes are as delicious as they are pretty, where do you draw your inspiration? Particularly in my travels and in nature, the seasons offer us magnificent paintings! It is enough to draw from the prettiest colors, the most beautiful shapes, the result is always great!
- Has your way of consuming has evolved since you pay attention to "eating well"? Sure ! It's a virtuous circle! When you do good to your body, you are necessarily aware of the well-being of the planet. We are intimately linked, so our life choices result from it.
