Your host Léonie
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.

"Léonie is a great cook and delightful teacher. Thank you!"
Heather & John Patton 18 May 2020
"Our family spent a Saturday morning creating a delicious French lunch with Léonie. Our kitchen smelled amazing from the very first step (warming the herbes de Provence in olive oil for the ratatouille quiche filling) until we took the finished quiche from the oven. I wish I could attach a photo - the rustic quiche was beautiful AND delicious. Léonie also taught us the simple steps to make an amazing traditional mousse au chocolat for dessert. And then for Léonie's best kept secret: what to do with any extra ratatouille filling...use it as sauce for lasagne the next day! "
