The Food Keeper is the literal translation of the French term for pantry, le garde manger, chosen as a testament to the founders’ French-American backgrounds. As the name implies, the project hope to highlight a range of perspectives across cultures and beyond borders through series of essays and photographs.

“We all have a story”  — Through this platform we want to portray the rich and various personal stories of women, shedding light on their journeys and accomplishments.

Empowerment comes from education, knowledge and open-mindedness. By featuring intelligent and inspiring women on The Food Keeper, we hope to inspire our readers to claim their own voices and to examine the underlying convictions that drive their lifestyles.


We are always looking to elevate more people through The Food Keeper, so if you would like to share your story or collaborate with us, get in touch at contact@thefoodkeeper.com.


The team consists of Fanette Guilloud, founder & creative director, and contributor & writer Emily Besa.
