Fanny, The French Teacher
I am a native french speaker, who is not only passionate about my mother tongue but also in French culture and food. I am a French language teacher with a Bachelor’s Degree in French as a Foreign Language. I lived in Germany, Ireland and Canada before settling in Australia 4 years ago. I have recently opened a French school – FRENCH Space - with classes and workshops for children, teenagers and adults in Brunswick. I look forward to sharing my passion for all things French and particularly the French language.
Sandra, The French Pastry Chef
I have created Petite Chérie, the online shop specialised in French pastries, few month ago. Petite Chérie, pâtisserie française, provides authentic French cakes 100% handmade with traditional recipes. As I am French, I trained as a pastry chef in Paris (France) and came to share with you in Melbourne a fine selection of the most famous pastries. I use only natural ingredients (nothing artificial! No additive, no preservative, no artificial colour or flavour).
