Madeleine Kamman was born Madeleine Marguerite Pin in Courbevoie, France on November 22, 1930. She attended the Sorbonne and studied cooking at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris. She was working as a reservations manager in Paris for Swissair when she met her future husband Alan Kamman. They married in 1960 and moved to the Philadelphia area. In 1968, she was teaching cooking at home and in adult education classes when she wrote a letter to The New York Times food editor criticizing a recipe for snails proven├žale on toast that was printed in the newspaper.

After moving to Massachusetts, she opened a cooking school and restaurant in Newton Centre. She later taught cooking in Annecy, France and at the Beringer Vineyards in St. Helena, California.
