I was born and raised in Paris and moved to Boston two years ago to go to Tufts University. I love food and am very excited to be an intern for Allrecipes this summer!

I always made Gratin Dauphinois with my father, which is the first recipe I put up, and I loved making brownies with my Mom growing up.
