say hi to_ Holiday Guide | II. The Gourmand
Mathilde was raised in the South of France growing up on incredible wine, gourmet French food, weekend strolls through the fresh vegetable markets and backyards full of aromatic herbs. The shame is that her parents, a diplomat from Cameroon and a travel writer, were rarely at home and never taught her to cook like most of her peers!
Now as an adult living in London as she owns her own fresh juice company. Although her juice is to die for, she feels as though she has to live up to her French stereotype and must be an excellent cook on top of that. She still has a tough time boiling an egg but you would hardly notice as her excellent taste in home decor can distract one from even the most unpleasant of meals.
Still passionate about enjoying food, juicing, the kitchen, her cultural background and at least looking the part... we take a glimpse at Mathilde's holiday wishlist - in the event that you have someone similar to shop for this year.
