A cook’s tour of France: Each year in spring, Gabriel Gaté spends two months travelling his native land, where he began as a chef more than 40 years ago, to produce and present Taste Le Tour with Gabriel Gaté, a series of gourmet 

segments for television, featuring the top specialities of the regions travelled by the Tour de France. ‘A Cook’s Tour of France’ is a collection of the delicious recipes prepared for the show over the past four years. The book includes dishes from all the main regions of France, such as the popular Auge Valley Chicken Casserole from Normandy, the colourful Ratatouille from Nice with Lemon Chantilly and, of course, lovely desserts, as only the French can do, like the luscious Strawberry Tart from the Loire Valley. With contributions from Philippe Mouchel and Pierrick Boyer, ‘A Cook’s Tour of France’ features the super gastronomy of France, from fish and seafood, excellent wines and liqueurs, extraordinary cheeses, unique range of charcuteries, delicious bread, and cakes and patisseries.

Gabriel Gaté is a French-trained 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 cooking from his maternal grandmother, who was an 

excellent cook.As a young chef, Gabriel learned to cook from some of the finest French chefs before leaving France with his Australian-born wife, Angie. He is the author of 22 cookbooks, including ‘100 Best Cakes and Desserts’ and ‘Taste Le Tour’.
