Join us for an utterly scrumptious evening with Gabriel Gaté as he shares with us his passion and knowledge through the stunning pages of recipes in his latest cookbook.
Growing up in Loire Valley, France, Gabriel Gaté was raised amongst his family’s vineyard, with an abundant orchard of raspberries, strawberries, rhubarb and redcurrants; living off the land and often hunting for wild blackberries, strawberries, hazelnuts, walnuts and chestnuts.
It was as no surprise that Gabriel became a chef, specialising in pastry work, soon launching him into a career of teaching, presenting culinary shows on television and writing cookbooks, with sales of his books exceeding 1.1 million copies, making him the highest-selling Australian male cookery writer.
Making a very special gift for those who share the love of home cooking with a soft spot for sweets, or simply as an addition to any home recipe library for those seeking to learn the baking fundamentals to execute the perfect French dessert, So French So Sweet is guaranteed to earn you brownie points in the kitchen.
