Leonie became passionate about cooking and baking when she realized what a central place food occupies in our everyday life. Leonie learned to cook from her parents as a young child growing up in France. Because she became a vegetarian when she was 10, she also learned to cook for herself. In her words, “Food gathers everyone and everything together. It tells so much about a country, a community and a person.” Originally from France, Leonie finds inspiration from traditional and family recipes, from travel and stories, and her French roots. A young university student, Leonie lives an active and healthy lifestyle in Germany and enjoys creating simple, healthy and delicious dishes that remind her of home.
