About Marie-Laure Nguyen

My name is Marie-Laure. I am French, from South West of France and of course, I am "crazy" about food in general. I moved to California fifteen years ago to work at Lucas Films. I am a lighter, and special effects is one of my passions. I worked on Blockbuster movies like The Matrix, The Twilight Saga, and more recently, TED2!. I am a mother of 3 kids with a busy agenda but I always take the time to cook. It makes me feel so good and relaxed. I like to experiment with new flavors all the time and sharing them with my friends and neighbors is important to me. For the last 6 years, I have been preparing soup for the homeless in Berkeley (Night on the Street – JC Orton) every other week for 80 people between Thanksgiving and Easter. After launching my own business, "Quiche Marie," making a lot of quiches, I realized how I was missing the opportunity of having a nice meal with family and friends. I can’t wait to share my cooking with you. Let me know what you want to taste from France (or from another country.) I would love to do it. A très bientôt!
