The story behind the passion: A few words from Chef Marie

Welcome to my creative space: 

Healthy cooking at service of foodies

 Since 1999, I am constantly in the search of improving top chef ingredients, influencing trends and perfecting new cooking skills. I am a business owner since 2003 and chef-owner and founder of MCHEF® since 2009. I studied at the Culinary School titled “Institut Tourisme et d’Hôtellerie du Québec” in Montreal QC. Canada from 1999-2003 with Chef Jean-Paul Grappe whose teachings and inspiring guidance led me to discover the cuisines of the world.

I kicked off my career working in restaurant kitchens in Montreal back in 2016, gradually rising to the position of Chef in a 10 year of professional training achievement. 15 years ago, working in the restaurant kitchens, our team was responding to customer demand for special menus with restrictions like salt free, gluten free nuts free, etc. In 2009, a grassroots business idea flourished into the new and innovative business of a higher scale of “Chef at Home” services. At the request of loyal customers, I created gourmet-style meals consisting of all natural, allergen-free, and low in sodium herbs and spice blends that would delight even the most sophisticated of palates.

My search as a flavor developer-spice sommelier brought me to discover the infinite possibilities that spices and herbs can offer. Therefore, I made it a mission of my own to share with all a variety of unique and delectable ethnic blends that showcase the best cuisines of the world and bring awareness in “clean label” quality herbs and spices. The ethnicity of flavors is for me the most beautiful way of discovering the cultures of my environment.

My mission is inspired by the commitment to ensure the well-being and health of people and to simply improve the quality of life through food, which is one of the key factors in a "flavorful" life. I enjoy writing books and showcase my favorite recipes. I have so many great recipes to share with you. 

In my quest to expand the mission, I have also specialized in holistic cuisine, with particular reference to allergens, diets and dietary restrictions, allergies, and intolerances. With her new approach to nutrition, the alternatives it offers can provide many health benefits for people.

I am is also a classically trained musician, pianist, singer, under the artist name MariDo. I offer a discographic set of seven piano albums, "the language of the heart", accompanying music to people for moments of relaxation and meditation. Touching people's hearts, one heart at a time. I am certified as a musical accompanist in palliative centers where music has its place in the silence to raise the vibrations. I simply follow the flow of life.

Today, I pursue are personal development in Reiki Usui energy work as a healer and instructor, and as a self-development practices author and a speaker. Thus, my messages of integration daily through positive affirmations are supported by the creation of soothing piano and music. 

My entire personal and professional journey has been driven by the need and desire for personal and professional well-being. I wish to share my learning through healthier food, musical creations, and healing energy teachings, and meditation practices.
