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.

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.
