Honing her skills in fine French Café in Melbourne in 2007, after relocating to Australia from Switzerland, her urge to travel had not been extinguished, Los Angeles beckoned , followed by 5 years between France and Switzerland.
Sandra is passionate about cooking since she was little. Ever since she can remember, her family has celebrated lunch as a feast.“I have had the pleasure to grow-up in the countryside borders of France in a little village surrounded by farms with my father and having a garden and remember eating only food from the garden after helping him to clean the vegetable for hours....”
From her home in Melbourne, she began to strip away the mystery of cooking after going through 10 years of working in Accounting. Sandra and her husband, Pascal, a French biologist met in Switzerland - will impart some of the secrets of authentic recipes handed down from her Family in Law. she got back to basics with Fresh ingredients, her aim being to spread the love passion to her students. And she realized a dream to create a unique learning and entertaining venue for the food lovers of Melbourne for the last 8 years!

Perfect! We've tried lots of chefs for cooking lessons and Sandra is by far the best. You'll learn the most and the proof is in the cooking! Will definitely use again.
Sandra, our friend and neighbour, is a talented and passionate chef, with great energy and good humour. Her teaching style is ideal for both beginners and for more advanced cooks who would like to learn a specific skill (e.g macaroons)
Highly recommended. She is a great cook with a very pleasant and friendly personality.
Magic skills, knowledge and experience. I highly recommend Sandra to you.
Sandra’s a great teacher - knowledgable, patient, thorough, and friendly. She has a wide repertoire including regional European cookery and patisserie. I would recommend her for individuals and groups of students.
My neighbour and I had a lesson in macaron making with Sandra. She is really excellent in the kitchen and a great teacher, showing us in detail how to master each of the steps involved. Our macarons looked like ones you would purchase in a high end bakery! If you are looking to improve your skills in the kitchen, Sandra can definitely help you out.
I had the honour of working with Sandra before. She's an understanding and empathetic soul who creates edible magic.
