Raised in a bon vivant home, Marie-Aude Rose began to discover her path early, cooking often with her grandparents in Paris and the French countryside. After an experimental time studying at the Sorbonne and as a theater actress, she realized that she loved being in kitchens best, and has been there since.
Marie-Aude holds two diplomas from l’Ecole Ferrandi, and has worked for many Michelin star restaurants. She first met her husband Daniel Rose at his restaurant Spring in Paris, and they have been cooking together since. In 2016 the couple moved to the United States, where Daniel opened Le Coucou. With La Mercerie, Marie-Aude is excited to bring her talents to New York, and present her personal version of French cuisine.
