Join Lou to escape to France momentarily through the wonderful stories of various Francophiles! Andrew Prior is a fabulous French foodie who some Australians will know from his time as a contestant on MasterChef some years ago, but now he is living his best life in a gorgeous pocket of France in the village of Montmorillon.

Like Lou, Andrew didn't travel until a little later in life during his 30s. On his first trip he went to Paris and just loved his 2 weeks there. He straight away felt a connection and loved French food. (Something here seems oddly familiar!!!) After this however Andrew's story takes a fabulous turn with his (now) husband spending a year studying in Paris. Andrew turned his back on his career in insurance underwriting and went with Peter to Paris. He had nothing to do but be a complete flâneur and mosey around the French capital for months on end! What an experience to immerse in French food, people watching, jardin meandering, café mooching and architecture gazing daily! Oooooh la la!

After this Andrew took another leap of faith and joined the prestigious club of MasterChef contestants. His journey there took him down another life path towards food and this time more specifically, his own business doing food tours. Andrew specialised in French food tours with his own Queenies Food Tours in Melbourne. How I wish I had have gone on a tour with him back then when he was still in Australia! He has also led some brilliant foodie tours in France.  

Andrew has now moved back to France with his husband and 2 golden retrievers Lenny and Louis into the Nouvelle Aquitaine region.  He has dived into French life and loves to pore over old French cook books, meander around gorgeous authentic country village markets and of course cook for his family and friends. 

Tune in to hear Andrew's fascinating story, with lots of his faves thrown in!
