Guest Speaker: Gabriel Gaté

Gabriel Gaté is a chef with an international reputation as a cookery author, television presenter and cookery teacher. 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 has since established himself as one of the country’s leading communicators on food and cooking. He is the author of twenty-three books. Total sales of his books exceed 1.1 million copies, making him the highest-selling Australian male cookery writer ever. Gabriel has presented cookery shows on television for the past 35 years, and over the last ten years has 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 in July each year.
