PRAISE FOR SOPHIE VALROUX'S PARIS STARS:

ABOUT SOPHIE VALROUX'S PARIS STARS:
Sophie Valroux thought her life was falling apart when she moved to France, jobless, to take care of her ailing grandmother. After being fired from a prestigious New York restaurant, Sophie was convinced her professional career was over. But the opposite has turned out to be true―Sophie is now thriving as head chef at Château de Champvert, the beautiful estate that she inherited from her grandmother, who recently passed away. Surrounded by loyal friends, dedicated staff, and a dreamy French fiancé, Sophie seems to have it all―except for those coveted Michelin stars she’s been vying for.

Samantha Vérant is a travel addict, a self-professed oenophile, and a determined, if occasionally unconventional, at home French chef.
She lives in southwestern France, where she's married to a French rocket scientist she met in 1989, a stepmom to two incredible kids, and the adoptive mother to a ridiculously adorable French cat.
When she's not trekking from Provence to the Pyrénées or
embracing her inner Julia Child, Sam is making her best effort to
relearn those dreaded conjugations.
