Susi Gott Séguret was born and raised in the woods of the Appalachian Mountains, in Western North Carolina. During her 20-year trek around Europe spent honing her culinary expertise, Susi remained connected to nature, hunting mushrooms in the forèt d'Orleans and bouldering in the forèt de Fontainebleau. Today, Susi leads foraging expeditions in Blue Ridge and teaches others how to blend the elegance of French cuisine with the simplicity of mountain ingredients. She is the author of Appalachian Appetite.
