Taste the Loire Valley Dinner
Chef Gabriel Gaté was born in the Loire Valley of France where his father grew all the family’s fruit and vegetables and made wine from the small family vineyard, Gabriel learned the joys of eating and cooking from his mother and grandmother who were excellent cooks. As a young man, Gabriel had the chance to learn to cook from some of the finest French chefs (he worked in two three Michelin-star restaurants) before coming to Australia in 1977 with his Melbourne-born wife, Angie. He is the author of twenty-three cookbooks, including ‘French Cuisine for Australians’. Gabriel has presented cookery shows on television for the past 40 years, most recently he produced and presented ‘Taste Le Tour with Gabriel Gaté’, a series of gourmet segments on French food and wine screened on SBS during the Tour de France bicycle race in July each year, which lasted 15 seasons.
This year, Gabriel Gaté celebrates 50 years of working as a French chef with an international reputation, a cookery author, television presenter and cookery teacher. Gabriel’s enormous contribution to Australia’s culinary landscape helped pave the way for chefs just like me. I am very grateful for his work as Ambassador of French cuisine in Australia.
Gabriel and I will combine our culinary skills – to bring you a special intimate evening (limited seating) with story telling about his life and passion as a master French chef, fine French dishes and exceptional wines from his beloved Loire Valley, France.
It is indeed an honour and privilege to have Gabriel at my humble French restaurant in Bungendore. Please join me and warmly welcome a colleague, a mentor and friend.
