Taste Le Tour with
French chef, Gabriel Gaté, is back for the thirteenth consecutive year to present his delicious serve of Taste Le Tour, a gastronomic journey that follows the route of the epic Tour de France bicycle race.
Once again, Gabriel discovers the best gourmet specialities of each region of the twenty-one stages of this amazing race. He visits century-old markets and restaurants and features cheeses and wines that have been made in the same manner for three or four hundred years.
All over France Gabriel meets talented artisans, including the best pâtissiers (pastry cooks), boulangers (bakers), vignerons (wine makers) and, of course, some wonderful cuisiniers (chefs).
After having trained as a chef in France forty years ago with some of the great French Master Chefs, Gabriel firmly believes France is the most exciting country in the world for food. In each segment he cooks a superb local French dish that features the specialities of the region. Some dishes are ancient, while others are modern and exotic .
Gabriel knows France intimately and has chosen for his stories some stunning scenery in each region, including a number of the most historic and picturesque French villages.
Taste Le Tour is beautifully produced and provides a great complement to SBS's superb coverage of the Tour de France.
