The Cook’s Atelier

December 1st, 2017

Marjorie Taylor and Kendall Smith Franchini have more in common than just an enviable set of genes — the gorgeous mother/daughter pair also share a passion for food, wine, and all things French. That’s why together, they decided to take on expat status and co-found their own business in the Burgundy region of France. The Cook’s Atelier is a renowned cooking school, but also a dream place of sorts where guests from all over the world can experience French food and cooking in an idyllic setting. Marjorie and Kendall host workshops, wine tastings, bespoke gatherings and even offer lodging above their shop (which is curated to patinaed perfection by Kendall’s husband, Laurent Franchini.) Scroll down to see why we’re dying to visit The Cook’s Atelier in person. And if a trip to Burgundy isn’t in your plans, worry not, because Marjorie and Kendall’s first cookbook The Cook’s Atelier: Recipes, Techniques, and Stories from Our French Cooking School will be published in 2018 and is already available for pre-order on Amazon. Bon appétit!
