Léa Jean-François

Léa Jean-François (she/her) is a Caribbean-Jewish recent graduate of Barnard College where she studied Environmental Science and Biology. Léa has spent her summer after college studying organic farming and is now conducting research investigating diseases related to the essential tissue barriers. Léa values growing, cooking, and eating food that is supportive of the land, closely connected to the local community, and shares nourishment. Léa has long awaited a JoC cookbook to share/learn of one another’s culture, and hopes this cookbook will allow JoC to find comfort through cuisine.
