Melissa Clark Scott enjoys “walking in the footsteps of Chef Virginie Woo” who was born and raised in Versailles (France) and was exposed to many cultures from which she takes the best of the worlds cuisine to incorporate in her creations. Her goal is to demonstrate the techniques and steps for creating the most exquisite dishes and desserts in a simple, quick, and healthy manner. To realize this Virginie Woo started her first cooking school in the West side of Paris where she developed many recipes and continues teaching healthy gourmet cooking around North America: from New York to San Francisco, from San Diego to Montréal.

Following Julia Child’s footsteps, Virginie Woo has recently given a cooking class at the French Cultural Center in Boston in the same kitchen where Julia Childs cooked. She has also cooked for many notable epicurean magazines to show how easy it is to create healthy dishes in minutes as a spark for cooking creativity.

Virginie Woo is now a culinary expert and has written more than 250 recipes (savory and dessert) since her debut in cuisine. Recipes were made available to all guests at the recent cooking demonstration and wine tasting.
