Teaching French is a passion and a hobby. But, my world would not be complete without my family, my friends, my garden, literature, music, knitting, movies and exercise!!!

Born and raised near Paris, I am a French chef in Ann Arbor. I love sharing my heritage and the joys of a traditional French dinner experience. Looking forward to learning from other people's passion.

Suzanne Murray spent 32 years working at the Earle. It was there that her interest in all things culinarily Italian and French were nurtured. A year in Paris solidified her leanings. Twenty years of teaching high school opened the door to Spanish and she now dwells on the three languages and is obsessed with etymologies. To keep her hands busy, she and her partner bake and sell baguettes, brioche and madeleines.

Thank you, Stuart, for a fun and informative evening. I loved the progression of the class (maybe the wine helped "a little"?), and interacting with all the people there, as well as those interesting/delicious wines. Hope to see you soon!

Thank you so much, Stuart, for hosting and organizing such a lovely wine tasting evening. You put a lot of time in producing a detailed and essential handout that I will study and put on my cookbook shelf for reference. It was a treat to learn from and with you. And, to do this together with a convivial group of friends was special. What a good idea to celebrate our president with a delicious champagne at the beginning! You successfully studied the progression of tastes in all the wines you picked. A special thanks for concluding the evening with this beautiful Saint Emilion bottle from you well stocked cellar. We might have seemed rowdy toward the end as we devoured the fantastic cheeses, the figs, the raisins and everything that was in front of us. I know you understand why....With gratitude to you and Heather.

Thank you to Stewart and Heather for hosting the wine tasting event. Les and I enjoyed it very much. Stewart was so well prepared that we learned a lot. Spending an evening with people from the Francophone community was an added bonus, not to mention sampling the delicious cheeses. Mission accomplished!!!

Not only the wine and the cheeses were a treat but sharing this in a magnificent decor was delightful as well. Thanks for speaking so well about Wines and France. It was a real treat.

Can you provide a bed after the tasting and a note to my employer saying that I will be absent the next day?
