Being a mother of two girls she has always made a themed birthday cake every year and the girls who are today 23 and 19 still have the special cake on their birthday.

That said, "she loves experimenting and creating new dishes which incorporate foods from around the world".


Her speciality is baking and decorating cakes for any occasion.After March 2020 Covid has given an opportunity for Chez Nanie to offer online classes for adults as well as children. Her Macaron making classes have been a real big hit as being one of her best treats she bakes. Children loved to make a "Trompe-l'oeil" burger with chips fully made of brioche, chocolate brownie and Sables Biscuits.If you fancy a nice french breakfast make sure to order her croissants and Pains au Chocolat!
