about me


I am a French cheese lover and educator, and I spend my days eating and writing about fromage for various publications and offering gourmet food tours and French cheese workshops, online with Eventbrite and Context Learning, and in person in Paris with Paris by Mouth.

My blog, Chez Loulou began in January 2006 as a way to give others a glimpse of our life in a beautiful corner of France, the Languedoc-Roussillon, where we lived for almost 8 years. In December 2011 we started a new French adventure and moved north to the Calvados department in lower Normandy and in October of 2015 we said goodbye to our little, rural cottage in Normandy and moved to Paris

This blog includes stories about the delicious regional food and wine from around France, European travel insights and experiences, recipes of my favorite sweet and savory dishes, photos of the stunning scenery and charming vignettes I capture through my camera lens, stories of life in France, including the ever-present challenge of French bureaucracy and practical advice about moving to France and the cost of living in France.
It also includes cheese. Lots of cheese! In April of 2007 I started a project to taste each and every cheese being produced in France. So far I've tasted almost 400, but with around 1500 French cheeses out there, I have a long way to go!

If you would like to contact me to arrange a tasting or a tour in Paris, please send an email to louloufrance@gmail.com
