I am passionate about food and cooking, I believe that there is so much to learn about food and the tastes and flavours from around the world. Food is also a lifestyle thing, I like to teach and show people how easy it is to prepare healthy food. There is no barrier to cooking. -It does not matter if you are a child of 10 years or a 75 year old grandfather. Through my books and teaching I like to show everyone how easy it is to discover the joys of cooking.
As a chef, cookery writer and a television presenter, I provide many services including product endorsement.
I HOPE WE CAN ASSIST YOU OR HELP YOU BECOME A BETTER COOK.
Gabriel Gaté is a chef with an international reputation as a cookery author, television presenter and cookery teacher.
Gabriel was born in the Loire Valley of France in 1955. Whilst his father grew the family fruit and vegetables and made wine from the small family vineyard, his grandmother was an excellent cook and passed on the joys of cooking to her grandson.
Gabriel was born in an old castle (converted into a local hospital of course) and spent his childhood in the home you can see above.
Gabriel served his chef's apprenticeship with Albert Augereau, renowned in the Loire Valley as the best chef of the region. Later, Gabriel worked at the famous Paris fish restaurant, Prunier, and with the Savoy Company at the Berkeley Hotel in London.
