I was four years old and I was cooking with my grandmother… Without a doubt, the dining room was the epicentre of the house. I had always been fascinated by it. La table was where discussions happened, decisions were made, and, above all, it was where the act of sharing was renewed at least three times a day. For the past 10 years, I have and continue to use gastronomy to explore the extraordinary world of food and wine. I am extremely proud to be able the live the life of a professional sommelier in an era where people are more curious about wine than ever before. Regardless of your level of experience with wine, from amateur to connoisseur, you are very welcome at pasouliere.com. Explore and have fun.
