About Muriel-Marguerite Foucher

Muriel-Marguerite Foucher, owner of Paris Eastside, spent most of her life living in Paris where she owned and operated a successful cooking school for 10 years. As a little girl Muriel-Marguerite was inspired by her grandmother, who raised her and first introduced her to the joys of food and cooking.  She spent hours with her grandmother in the kitchen preparing meals and developing a passion for food that later grew into a career. After years teaching French cooking to English speaking tourists in Paris, Muriel-Marguerite moved to Bellevue, Washington where she now lives with her family. In June 2012 Foucher published her first cookbook, Easy French Microwave Recipes: Impress Your Friends with 30 Easy French Recipes and in December 2012 opened Paris Eastside a French lifestyle boutique located in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood.
