After working as a food writer at a daily newspaper in Canada, Rosa moved to Paris where she became an interpreter at the world-famous Cordon Bleu cookery school. Her fascination with French culture and cuisine grew and, keen to develop and share her expertise, she has worked as a food journalist and writer for a range of publications.
Dividing her time between Nice and Paris, Rosa is constantly on the lookout for new culinary experiences to share with her readers and students. Rosa is a native English speaker and speaks fluent French.
After a few years working in international marketing, which took her to Shanghai and Hong Kong, Sophie decided it was time to follow her passion for patisserie and everything sweet. She retrained as a professional pastry chef in Melbourne, and passed the French CAP certificate (pastry trade exam) when she relocated back to France.
She loves to share the sweet secrets to French pastry and make them accessible to the inspired home cook.
Sophie speaks fluent English, Mandarin and native French.
