Yolaine Corbin was born and grew up in Orleans south of Paris, but now describes herself as a "Frozzie"! That is a French born/Australian settled. Yolaine is the owner of fabulous French food company here in Melbourne “Frenchilicious Kitchen”. She’s a chef, an official Thermomix recipe creator and a maman to 3 gorgeous girls. 

Growing up in Orleans Yolaine dreamed of travelling and tried to learn English by listening to pop music on the radio which was mostly in English! After her school years had finished she decided to take off to Australia to travel around for a year in order to get her English speaking to a proficient level. It was a struggle at times with the Aussie accent being so different to the UK accent she learned with back home growing up in France.

Yolaine now has a wonderful catering company specialising in French inspired dishes and lately she has taken a particular interest in Basque cuisine as well. But her food journey here in Australia was not always smooth. Yolaine didn't plan to work in the food industry initially but got a job at a French crêpery before taking off to travel around the country. Eventually Yolaine's year abroad in Australia was over and she had to return to France.

Yolaine felt there was unfinished business for her in Australia so she returned and lucky for us that she did! 
In this Loulabelle's FrancoFiles papotage de podcast, we hear of Yolaine's food influences, how she entered and won a cooking competition on Australian television show The Chef's Line (SBS) which inspired her to open her own catering company as well as the challenges faced by being French in Australia, trying to keep her kids bilingual and maintaining her French connection herself. 



Yolaine has a special offer for Loulabelle's FrancoFiles listeners: 
Mention that you heard her on the Loulabelle's FrancoFiles podcast and she will throw in a bag of macarons with your order!
