  • Chef Marie has been so gracious to be our guest Chef at Premium Gold Flax Products booth at various Winter Fancy Food Show in San Francisco and Natural Product Expo West in Anaheim. Marie has worked many other events with us as well. She is a true professional that carries out her duties with great ease and with a stealthiness that is required at these trade shows. She is a whiz and we are proud to have her as a friend as well. Not often will a Chef dawn an apron and she did for Debbie Kay's Gluten Free Kitchen. A Country hats off to Chef Marie!

  • Dear Marie, do you remember how your gentil smile caught my eyes at the airport? Do you remember how strangely we ended up sitting next to each other in the airplane? I certainly do, as you have changed my life that day. I can never thank you enough for being there for me in my darkest moment. Today, I have realized that our miraculous encounter was the starting point of my healing. I want you to know I am doing great and my marriage is strong again. One last thing, contrary to what you think, you are an angel who can fly!
