I have spent many years cooking and preparing meals, learning from creative chefs from all over the world. ​ It is my pleasure to help people navigate the wine regions of France, by sharing wine knowledge that helps in understanding how to buy and enjoy French wines, and creating special dishes for your dining pleasure!
Join me and my "host with the most" French fiancé, in our spacious Parisian apartment for a fun family meal! While we dine on a delicious five course French dinner, feel free to ask us questions about Paris, life in Paris, where to go, what to see, and any other things you may want to know about!

Note: All the food ingredients are specially purchased to enhance the french experience, and are Bio where applicable. For example, the I buy everything fresh the day of preparation, and I purchase cheese from an award winning fromagerie in my neighborhood, and also the artisan bread. (The bakery across the street from me just won the best baguette in Paris 2018!) Additionally, my wines are selected to pair with the menu perfectly, and are of the highest quality. No short cuts here! Just the best quality ingredients, prepared with gracious hospitality!

This was our first Eatwith experience and we really enjoyed it, so much so that we may end up skipping dnner! Camilla is very knowledgeable we really enjoyed the great food and conversation. The trip through the market was lovely and we hope to go back there again soon. Thank you for a wonderful morning and afternoon! J & T, Toronto

I thoroughly enjoyed Navigating French Wines with Camilla. She is a charming and knowledgeable host who makes her guests feel at ease from the start. The seminar is informal but practical and comprehensive. She covers a lot of ground but makes it understandable for wine lovers of every level. The seminar covers just the right amount of information to allow guests to go out and taste and buy French wine with confidence without bogging them down with unnecessary minutia. I thought she really hit it spot-on! And the food she serves is delicious. It's definitely not just "wine and cheese"! She provides multiple courses of carefully thought-out dishes to the point that it feels like a high-end restaurant! You certainly won't go away hungry. Overall, in terms of education, food and wine, her seminar is a great value and I'd happily do it again.

The evening you put together was one of the highlights of my trip. You gave me the opportunity to taste the 2003 Dom Perignon, the first vintage Champagne I'm aware of having tasted. Very special. And you introduced me to Ruinart, which I'd never come across. One person on Twitter remarked that Ruinart is not easy to find here. Thanks so much for turning me on to these great and distinguished bubbles. Interesting that our tastes and sensibilities agree on Taittinger/Ruinart.

Dining with Camilla is more than just a great dinner experience in a Parisian apartment. Camilla can not only prepare you an interesting, varied, and delicious dining experience, but she will match each course with the perfect wine. Not only are you getting a taste of Paris, you will learn why she has chosen each wine especially for you and your choices. I drop everything and immediately say "yes" when I get an invitation from Camilla. If she is opening her home to you, it is to welcome you and give you an evening to remember. She does nothing half way and is a wonderful hostess. Thing that is the most appealing about this experience is that you truly feel special.
