A chef not like the others …
It was at the age of 6, during a lunch at a star-studded table, that she had the trigger: she would become a chef.

We met her last November while filming at the Plaine Saint-Denis studios. A sparkling and elegant woman. From the outset, his charisma seduces. Unsurprisingly, the candidates were impressed by the small size of the woman, whose mission was to sublimate the coquillages. “I want to find out how young people here see cooking. They represent the future and inspire me“She is delighted. It is an honor for her to be a part of the show.”Top Chef France is a worldwide reference. What was a marvelous experience, and I was impressed by the professionals, skills and creativity, did not prove to the candidates.“

You even create a new show!“In the meantime, it will be possible to taste her cuisine in the coming months in Paris, where she will open at the first address.
