Welcome to Basil & Bubbly! I'm Marianne - and I run the show here. I spent the last 18 years in Charleston, SC, and still have a love for it, although I recently moved back to my hometown of Atlanta, GA. My recipes are fueled by my love of the Lowcountry, Georgia, Southern food in general, with a heavy influence from classic French cooking as well.
I'm a proponent of eating local, fresh ingredients, and mostly natural, if not organic. There are a few exceptions on the blog, but for the most part, expect to see my recipes reflect the same!
It's best to take everything I say in person and on the blog with a grain of salt. I am sarcastic, and my writing reflects that as well.
I live in Atlanta with my two girls ( cats ), where I love to dine out as much as I love to stay in and cook. I love a 12 course molecular gastronomy tasting menu with grower champagne pairings as much as I love a 2 AM Taco Bell run - which is to say, A LOT.
My personal motto: Champagne and Stretchy Pants.
Welcome! I hope you enjoy my recipes as much as I enjoy creating them. Feel free to hit me up on my contact page with any questions, and make sure to sign up for my mailing list to get an email once a week of all the new recipes on the blog.
