Mayana

I am a passionate chef currently working in Bordeaux. My love for cooking comes from my mother who gave me her passion and teached me all her tips and tricks. She wanted me to understand what makes cooking such a fun time. From a young age I have developed my passion for cooking through different experiences in gastronomic restaurants such as La Maison Kammerzell and L’Amuse Bouche in Strasbourg, France. Backpacking around the world for a year, I took cooking class in every country I went; what better way to understand a culture than learning about its food and cooking techniques. Today, I too wish to share this experience back home.

Where you'll be

This venue is close to the city center (15 minutes by tram). I am located in the district of Talence in my new appartment perfectly suited to host cooking class. Before heading to my place, we will first go the local farmer's market (or my favourite bakery when the market is closed) which is in front of Forum tram station (B line) where we will meet.
