Born in the Loire Valley, France, prominent chef and TV personality Gabriel Gaté has learnt how to cook with some of France’s finest chefs. Featuring a wide selection of 200 seasonal dishes, his new book is filled with beautiful travel photography and provides a comprehensive view into rural and urban French cuisine. Recipes have been tested and adapted for home cooks, and come from every region of the country.
Gaté currently lives in Australia with his family but returns to France twice a year. “Every visit is an inspiration and a source of epicurean pleasure,” he said. “I have toured and sampled food in every corner of France, from Normandy with its delicate Channel fish and seafood, and fine butter and cream; to Provence in the south, with its Mediterranean vegetables and olive oil; to Bordeaux with its illustrious red wines and renowned lamb; and Alsace with its great charcuterie and white wines.”
