Frini grew up in a family where everybody cooks. Her first teacher was her grandmother, who immigrated to Crete form Asia Minor and carried along a significant gastronomic heritage. She taught her how to make multiple traditional dishes and filled her memories with flavors, tastes, and skills. As she grew up, he realized that most people eat to live but there are some who live to eat. Happily, she belonged to the second group. Frini studied in Cyprus the Art and Science of culinary preparation and has worked as a gastronomy consultant and instructor of the Greek and Cretan cuisine ever since.

Following her studies in management and communications and after working in related fields for over ten years, Marilou decided to search for a more fulfilling and creative way of life. She founded LU Creative Studio, an artistic multiplex where creative seminars, retreats, and special events are organized. This quest for creativity also lead her to the path of yoga. She enjoys teaching small groups, especially close to nature. She finds that it is easier for students to understand their inner potential through the practice, away from the noise and distractions of city life.
