Biography

Disclaimer of sorts: I am a French copywriter who moonlights for English language clients on a regular basis. All copy on this website was written/translated by me. So what you read is what you get.

Your food writing needs will be handled by a writer based in Montreal, Canada with over 10 years experience as a freelancer, preceded by another decade in advertising agencies. (For a list of services, click Services at the bottom of this page.) Over the past few years, my food industry work has included: retooling the St-Hubert Restaurant chain menu; writing the Maple Trail Guide for the Maple Producers of Quebec; consulting/translating for U.S. Reser’s Fine Food line of Canadian packagings; copywriting of retail and B2B magazines for the Chicken Producers of Quebec; French copywriting and English supervision of the new Christophe Morel Chocolatier website; and principal writing on multiple POP/website/packaging mandates for Sobeys food banners (IGA, Bonichoix, Tradition, Rachelle-Béry).

As a freelancer, I have also written for Aramark, Arouch, Cage aux sports (Sportscene), Catelli, Danone, Fermes Trudeau, Flamingo, Gaspésie Gourmande, Hain Celestial Canada, Lafleur, Lassonde, Milk Producers of Canada, Chicken Producers of Québec, Maître Saladier, Maple Lodge Farms, McCormicks, Minute Rice, Olymel, Pasta Romana, Saputo, Silani, Skotidakis, Tour Eiffel, Valmont, Weston, etc. I have even taken a few non-food detours for Caisses pop Desjardins, Crown Diamond, Festival de littérature jeunesse and Procter & Gamble.

On the publishing front, I am the Food Columnist for Québec women’s magazine Véro. I have also authored two editions of the terroir cookbook À la bonne franquette, which won Silver at the Canadian Book Awards (2010). In all, my portfolio features 10 French cookbooks which can be viewed by clicking Books at the top of this page.

Finally, I have worked for television as recipe editor for cooking contest show Et que ça saute and as principal writer/recipe editor for TV show Les Saisons de Clodine’s books and magazines.

Strangely, I even found time to be on the Board of Administrators of the Association canadienne pour la presse gastronomique et hôtelière (Canadian Food and Hospitality Journalist Association).
