Chef Anne Stuart Folkes
Private Chef In Paris
Get to know me better
Passionate about cooking and sourcing the freshest ingredients, I believe that food should be as nutritious as it is delicious.
I am a professional private chef and educator with five years of experience in the culinary world. I graduated with my Diplôme de Cuisine and Diplôme de Gastronomy, Nutrition, and Food Trends at the renowned institution Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, recently awarded the #1 Culinary School in the World. Prior to this, I was a Global Food Sourcing Manager for a major USA grocery retailer, traveling the globe to source the best products for my customers, and gained an understanding of the food chain and its impact on the environment. Due to this, I give a great deal of attention to ingredients and their nutritional value, ensuring that my recipes and creations are not only healthy for you, but healthy for the planet. I believe that eating well should be as nutritious and delicious as possible.
The kitchen is a classroom and where I find my joy, which I try to teach in an easily adaptable manner, establishing curiously and encourage learning. With me, you'll find "Gourmet" has the simplest of definitions: deliciousness. As a Texan expat who’s lived in Italy, the United Kingdom, and France, I believe anything that makes an eater exclaim “WOW” after touching lips constitutes gourmet.

A cooking secret...
Joy! Cooking is an expression of love and passion- if you are missing those elements the food will certainly taste different. And a little spice...
