Sylvie Shirazi About Hello and welcome to my kitchen where I cook simply and seasonally with natural ingredients.

Gourmande in the Kitchen is about exploring the pleasures of eating whole, fresh, nutrient-rich foods while still indulging your inner “gourmande.”  Everything you’ll find here is free from gluten, refined sugar, and processed ingredients with many paleo & vegan friendly options as well. It’s about celebrating and embracing the clean, natural foods that our bodies crave and love most.

A “gourmande” is a person who has a love of good food and drink, someone who eats eagerly and with great passion, and I believe that everyone can indulge their inner “gourmande” while enjoying whole, fresh foods.

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

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