Addicted to good little Pyrenean dishes, whose history and recipes I know almost by heart (Bethmale cheese tartiflette, mounjetado, azinat), I compensate for my gluttony by practicing running and trail running in my beautiful Pyrenees ! My favorite trail: the Resistance trail in Castelnau-Durban, for its extraordinary atmosphere.

Adventurer at heart, I am a born globetrotter! In addition to traveling the 4 corners of the world, I like to walk in the valleys dear to my heart: those of Couserans. Attending a transhumance, a festival, buying my cheese directly from the producers or at the Saint-Girons market are some of my favorite moments.
