Marlene is Director and Instructor at Home Chef Workshop, whose mission is to teach and bring healthy, gourmet cooking into homes, offering a slower and sustainable lifestyle. She is also a jazz musician who appreciates improvisation in music and in the kitchen.
Jeff is a graphic artist and former wine consultant who has helped many a lost soul with wine pairing and buying tips that don't break the budget. His wry humor and eye for aesthetic detail are evident in his cooking, presentation, and sense of décor.
Jeff and Marlene will share their love of world cuisines culled from travels in Asia, Patagonia, the Himalayas, the Andes, the Amazon jungle, and most recently, their cycling trip through the French Dordogne region, home of foie gras and rustic gastronomy.
