About this pro

In addition to being a die-hard food fan, I have been cooking on my own since I can remember. My parents owned restaurants in Washington, DC and Richmond for over 30 years and are French which inevitably creates foodie children. 

I cook often at home, am constantly checking out new restaurants and new recipes. I take the money most people use to buy clothes to buy food. 

I am also in the wine industry which naturally pairs very well with the food industry. 

In my opinion, food is to be shared and cherished - I can't wait to share my enthusiasm, passion and skills with those who are interested in learning more!

All of it! I love the prep, being able to cook for myself and for others, discovering new techniques and ingredients. 

Food is the glue that holds all - not only do we need it but most of us really love it.

    The best experience I’ve ever had. She made me feel so comfortable and at home! I definitely recommend a lesson with Charlotte!


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I try to understand their wants and needs and the order of priority. I like to truly get to know new students and hear about their backgrounds, family history related to the student's goals, and what inspires them. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have been working with my parents in their restaurants since I can remember. I learned the ins and outs of the industry at a young age and continued to learn everything about food and beverage through several management jobs in a variety of restaurants with different styles and cuisines. 

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Just like any other area, it's always best if the teacher and student understand and respect each other. A plus is if they enjoy each other as well and have similar passions!
