Can you tell us about yourself and your background?
I'm Alice, I was born in Paris, but I grew up in the countryside, on the banks of a river, in the Loiret. I knew very early on that the world of cooking was my thing, not just cooking, but everything that gravitated around it: spoons, tablecloths, crockery, packaging in the supermarket, market gardeners at the market... I cooked a lot, I created menus that I changed according to the seasons.
I arrived in Paris at the age of 18, and I studied with the intention of opening my own restaurant one day, but the more I grew up, the more I realised that what I really wanted was to work in the world of cooking but with a slight step to the side. And you can't learn that in school. So I continued experimenting left and right and centre, interspersed with modelling jobs to pay for my studies and travelling to discover new cuisines. I didn't stop studying though, I went to the Ecole Estienne in Design and Communication Strategy, where I worked with graphic designers, typographers, space designers... and then I did a master's degree at Sciences Po, also in communication.
Today, I'm happy to be able to work in the world I dreamed about so much when I was younger and to realise that I'm continuing to feed this passion every day.
