Here's what people are saying about the show
"My Life in Sourdough explores dating, disappointment, and falling in love with a jar of yeast. (It) follows the dating debacles of an unlucky-in-love French girl whose love for all things culinary surpasses her interest in men. The end result is a quirky kind of rom-com-meets-Food-Network format, with a sensual focus on food and a narrative that’s eccentric, adorable, and beautifully shot. And for anyone trapped in the hellscape of modern dating, it’s weirdly relatable."
“On this episode director- photographer Marie tells us how her relationship with her sourdough starter became the inspiration for her award winning web-series My Life in Sourdough. We talk about the evolution of bread culture in the US and her native France. And she shares her secrets for traveling internationally with your sourdough starter and resuscitating starters from near death experiences.”
“Marie C. , a French filmmaker behind the hilarious miniseries My Life in Sourdough, wherein a woman falls in love with her sourdough starter, is just happy that good bread is getting its due, no matter who is making it”.
“My Life in Sourdough alternates between scripted vignettes around food and lovingly photographed segments instructing viewers how to make simple, elegant dishes. It’s a beautiful and ambitious series with tremendous potential."
“Marie of My Life in Sourdough knows a thing or two about how to make flour flourish. In her series, now filming its third season in Paris (!!!), we watch her explore life and love as it intersects with food. Baking, we see as she presents delicate homemade scones to a love interest, is an expression of love.”
"I remember the first time I watched the delightful series that is My Life in Sourdough - full of elegant shots of fresh produce and chilled butter running through manicured red nails. Only a French woman could produce a show so beautifully composed and mouthwateringly delicious, yet utterly, effortless. I've yet to discover another culinary series which artfully marries food, humor, romance, and a beautiful aesthetic."
“After watching the first episode of her web-series, My Life in Sourdough,
I was hooked. Inevitably, I then binge-watched all three seasons. And, it didn’t even feel like a binge—it felt like eating a slice of warm bread topped with whipped ricotta, the perfect snack you didn’t even realize you needed. (…) The series spans both New York and Paris (geographically, narratively, and linguistically!) and is part rom-com, part recipe how-to. And the visuals are gorgeous. As I watched, I became more and more inspired to try out the simply elegant, French girl style and to seriously take up baking”
"Marie 's web series about the trials and tribulations of life, dating, and love in Brooklyn has a magical quality to it. Between each webisode is a gorgeously lensed and beautifully styled recipe process that relates to the storyline. My Life in Sourdough imbues storylines with a feminine, sensual quality, while keeping situational humor at its heart and the connection to food both seamless and natural."
"New York-based filmmaker and photographer Marie C has a lofty resume to her name and is the creative force behind her own alternative cooking web series My Life in Sourdough. Modeled loosely on Marie’s own passionate life lived through the most humble of foods, My Life in Sourdough is a romcom-come-cooking show chronicling the culinary adventures of a French girl looking for love as orgasmic as bread making."
" My Life in Sourdough plays with gourmet hipster culture through a hybrid fiction, autobiography and cooking show format. This genre innovation allows Marie to explore her combined interests in cooking and awkward romantic interactions - and to cleverly blend the well-known cooking show format with an offbeat narrative about the difficulties of finding true love in Brooklyn."
"I am a sucker for a good romantic comedy. Even better if it offers a refreshing angle on the single life and better still if it involves the love of food!"
"Quirky and not yet established, My Life in Sourdough blends new food with new love in New York City. The format is reality TV meets culinary exploration, making it a little bit kooky and indirectly educational..."
"Fluffy is more man than flour. In fact, Fluffy is kind of a gentleman. But, like any relationship, things aren’t always easy. There’s infidelity, moments of doubt, a break-up that involves a freezer and a heartfelt note. And that’s what makes the series so special. It thrusts the world of food into the romantic comedy canon and doesn’t look back. Jeanne hasn’t gone crazy. She’s in love with someone very real, who just happens to live in a Mason jar."
“My Life in Sourdough est une série sur l’amour de la cuisine et le désir d’amour. Au fil des rencontres et des recettes (magnifiquement filmées !), arrive une improbable histoire d’amour avec un levain du nom de Fluffy. Depuis son bocal en verre, Fluffy s’exprime, déborde et devient l’amoureux de Jeanne. J’aime beaucoup la façon dont Marie C. crée des passerelles entre la France d’où elle vient et les États-Unis où elle vit, la façon dont elle raconte son histoire avec le pain et puis la quête de l’amour, le bonheur, la blessure, le manque (que Jeanne comble avec des baguettes…).
Et puis il y a aussi la vie de la réalisatrice qui s’immisce dans sa création, sans que l’on sache démêler ce qui est vrai de ce qui sort de son imagination, cela m’évoque le travail fascinant de Sophie Calle.”
“My Life in Sourdough (...) call(s) on the rather deep bullpen of internet foodies by situating a recipe at the center of each episode. The latter is boy meets girl plus 6 AM homemade pasta, and readymade for the venn diagram sweet spot of film and cookery".
"There’s an elegance and quirky honesty to Marie’s work that speaks to both an intelligent, subtle French sense of humor (that I very much appreciate) and the wondrous absurdity of being young today in Brooklyn."
"The cutest, tastiest web series to hit the Internet, My Life in Sourdough is both adorable and engaging and actually offers a recipe and useful lifestyle tip alongside each webisode."
