About your host Leonie: Bonjour, bonjour! I do not always carry a baguette under my arm and a béret on my head, but still, I do have a strong desire to share an authentic french cuisine and lifestyle, "comme à la maison". Drawing inspiration from traditional family recipes, from travel and stories, being well attached to my french roots that I want to spread and democratise, living an active and healthy lifestyle, I find the best balance to create simple, healthy, authentic yet delicious dishes with a twist. Bienvenue chez "à la french" !
