A Little Bit About Me

My passion for cooking comes from my childhood. I was born on the island of Réunion, a small French colony off the coast of Madagascar. Although my parents moved to France when I was very small, the spirit of the island was very much alive in our home, and especially in our kitchen.

The spirit of the island was still very much alive in our home, and especially in our kitchen.

I love introducing a touch of sunshine into my cooking and often add tropical flavours from Réunion to my desserts to give a vibrant twist to the elegant French classics.

All the recipes used at Gourmandises Académie are my own, and each one has been developed with time and a lot of love. I’m so happy to have been recognised with three stars in the prestigious Great Taste Awards. 

I love what I do, and to have my food honoured by such a renowned award is wonderful.

I am excited to share some of these recipes with you and look forward to welcoming you into my home as a student of the Gourmandises Académie.

Bon appétit,

Corinne x
