appetites-cover-340wAppetites: A Memoir

Marie LeNôtre’s story traces her journey through Greece and France, and finally settles in Houston, but not before providing a heartwarming love story and a reflection on life’s spiritual journey. Appetites begins with two story lines—the early life of Marie and that of her husband Alain—then melds into the story of the birth of their Culinary Institute. Marie weaves her personal and professional struggles together and writes passionately about difficulties in establishing the school, its eventual success, and the joy she finds in working with the students. Appetites shares Marie’s childhood dreams and adolescent struggles, the pains and joys of love in France, and the way she made the famous culinary name of LeNôtre her own—and helped spread it across the globe.

Marie LeNôtre is the Founder and Director of the Culinary Institute LeNôtre, created with her hus­band, Alain LeNôtre, in 1998. Marie has a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Houston, a bachelor’s degree in Drama from the University of Athens, Greece, a master’s degree in Public Health Education, from the University of Texas and a master’s degree in English and Creative Writing from the University of Houston. Marie and Alain live in Houston and Galveston, Texas, and Ajaccio, France.
