Mallorcan by birth, with a French mother, I have a passion for gastronomy, cookery, olive oil and traveling. I speak five languages: Spanish, French, Catalan, English and German.
Widely travelled and educated in various fields I am qualified in Sociology and Law. I have practiced as a lawyer and have worked as a journalist on country-branding development projects in Mexico, Mongolia and Sierra Leone.
Now I am concentrating on gastronomy and communication, working as a private chef and culinary guide. I plan and organize events, itineraries, activities and menus designed to introduce people to the cultural and culinary heritage of Mallorca.
From September 2011-2013, I have been presenting “Es Rebost”-“The Pantry”-, the traditional Balearic gastronomy section of the IB3 TV programe “Uep! Com anam?”. There, I elaborated Mallorcan typical recipes and local remedies. For two years I did a lovely "kitchen trip" visiting the homes of Mallorcan people, who invited me to share with others their family culinary knowledge.
I have also collaborated as Journalist, Presenter and Interpreter on the set of the German TV series "Gernstl Unterwegs" a documentary about Majorcan cuisine and culture produced by Megaherz for the Bavarian Television.
As a freelancer in the culinary communication sector, I have taken part in different projects: event production, restaurant PP.RR, taste workshops for kids and written articles for specialised media.
Olive oil is the place where my major interests meet: history, anthropology, gastronomy, cooking, health & nutrition...and a dash of spirituality.
Because of my genuine passion for this unique and sacred Mediterranean food, I have specialised in Olive Oil and Olive Oil Tourism.
I have trained as an Extra Virgin Oil Sommelier in the European School of Tasting and also as a Sensory Evaluation of Olive Oil Expert in the Spanish School of Tasting, both in Madrid.
In 2011 I also got the Culinary Travel Professional Certification from the International Culinary Tourism Association.
I am passionate about travel. In my opinion, food is a universal language and every culture expresses herself through her culinary rituals and habits. Understanding how people is connected to food in a precise community gives you a unique approach to their lifestyle and their perception of the world.
From my own experience traveling seeking for unique food adventures, I know that people these days are becoming more demanding and looking for genuine experiences, outside the conventional tourist scenes.
And these is exactly my aim: to disclose Mallorca's culinary traditions, the way we cook, eat, and above all, celebrate food.
