A Little About Me, The Site and Being A Gourmande

Sylvie gourmande

Hello, welcome to my online kitchen where I share simple and seasonal recipes made with natural ingredients.

My name is Sylvie, I’m the real food enthusiast, chocolate lover, food photographer, recipe developer, and blogger behind Gourmande in the Kitchen and I love to talk about clean eating and feel good food.

Why “Gourmande in the Kitchen” you ask?

A “gourmande” is a person who has a deep love of good food, someone who eats eagerly and with great passion, basically someone who is pretty fond of food and all it entails. I want everyone to indulge that inner “gourmande” when they’re in the kitchen with whole, fresh foods that are as good tasting as they are good for you.

Everything you’ll find here is free from gluten, refined sugar, and processed ingredients with many paleo, vegan, raw and allergy-friendly options as well. It’s all about real food, simple recipes, and big flavors to live a healthy and happy life.

The recipes are fast and fresh with a focus on quality ingredients and minimal preparation that let the natural flavors of the food shine.  You don’t need a lot of time or a long list of ingredients to make good for you, satisfying and delicious food when you start with the best ingredients possible.

Here I hope you will find everyday meal-time inspiration from my kitchen to yours that comes from a genuine love of food.

With love,
