Gabriel Gâté is a treasured iconic French chef in Australia! He is also a tv presenter, an author, a wonderful advocate for France and French events and businesses here Down Under and has been a fabulous friend to the Loulabelle's FrancoFiles podcast from almost the very beginning!
Recently Gabriel and his wife Angie travelled through France on a grand vacances. It occurred at the same time I was over in France and it seemed that we were travelling to the same places at different times!
I chatted with Gabriel about his visit to the Champagne region, to Strasbourg to visit with his niece Charlotte who together with her husband Guillaume Scheer, owns a Michelin starred restaurant there. He stopped in St Remy-de-Provence, in Sarlat which is a beautiful medieval village in the Dordogne and hosted a tour on the Saône River departing from Lyon. He gave me tips for finding market days for the various villages and we discussed all sorts of wonderful stuff to find at any marché du jour!
With further stays in the Loire Valley to visit with family, as well as some time spent up on the north coast of Normandy with family who had come in from all over France and the globe, Gabriel chatted with fascinating anecdotes about his travels all across the country.
