Marion was virtually born in the kitchen. From a young age she has been passionate about cooking and even wrote her first cookbook as a child. A dream come true, her first "real" cookbook will be published in early 2013. This gastronomic enthusiasm led to creating her own food blog www.marionadecouvert.com (in French) and after obtaining a degree in business she put that knowledge to use working for an organic food company, followed by a stint at Tartes Kluger, a well-known Parisian tart shop. She moved to Kitchen and worked for 4 years at Ladurée as a chef creating all the savory recipes. She now runs her own company as a food consultant for restaurant. www.marionflipo.com Marion adores sharing French cuisine with visitors on her market tours and cooking classes.
