Francois is a French chef with over 30 years of experience, who settled down in Perth in 2013. At 15, he started studying at a hospitality school in Alsace, the French region he was born in. He went to study at the most prestigious Chef School, l’Ecole Superieure de Cuisine Francaise in Paris.

He then worked for several Michelin star restaurants in Paris and then returned to his hometown to open his first bistro restaurant in 1997 in Strasbourg. A few years later, he opened a catering business and then a second fine-dining restaurant, L’Atelier du Gout (Workshop Taste).

When he arrived in Perth, he began working as a Head Chef for Alain Fabregues, the well-known owner of the Mundaring Loosebox restaurant. He launched his company My French Voyage in 2018 to offer intimate gourmet tours in the regional towns of France and make customers discover the real France. Then, he shared his love for delicious food with customers of his cooking class and private catering events.

He has extensively travelled over the years, which has helped him appreciate the different cultures and types of cuisines. Therefore, even though he specialises in modern French cuisine, he is knowledgeable in Italian, Spanish, and various types of Asian food.

His goal is for guests to have a unique experience which surpasses their expectations and fulfil their desires.

Francois was a great teacher. Very professional and knowledgeable. Class was a demonstration class rather than participation. That meant we could see many more foods being made and baked rather than every participant making on or two small deserts. I can’t wait to try the yummy deserts we learnt how to make

Great class, so many great tips. I have already made the shortcrust pastry and it all worked perfectly, so crispy and buttery. Can't wait to try making my own choux and puff pastry.

Excellent cooking class and very enjoyable too. Francois is a great teacher and he took a lot of trouble to show us how to prepare different pastry bases/doughs. We learnt how to make puff pastry, short crust pastry, brioche, choux pastry, creme patisserie and chantilly. We tasted what we prepared : Mille feuilles/vanilla slice, tarte au chocolat/chocolate tart, choux à la crème, brioche which were all yummy! It was a great experience thank you Francois.

Great demonstration class on the basics of making pastry and how to use as a base for desserts. Francois is friendly and approachable and made the class fun. I feel confident to tackle home made pastry now! You also get to sample and take home some tasty treats.

Lots of information and tips for making different pastry and recipes provided. Teacher is lovely and welcoming. Awesome afternoon.

Helena Nermut Jul 2022

Francois is a great teacher, well prepared and answered all my questions in detail. The class is a demonstration class on the technical side of making French pastry. You get great notes and recipes and Francois adds lots of tips, suggestions and recipe variations (making a savoury version, at what stage to freeze left overs etc). The end products were delicious and we got to take a sample box home to share (or not!)

Really enjoyed this class! So interesting watching Francois make pastries, brioche and learning excellent tips. Plus eating it as well, the puff pastry was amazing! We've made short crust pastry and gougère since we got home to practise :)

Jam-packed demo class. This isn't a class where you will be cooking the food, but it is worth it. There is not a single moment where Francois isn't giving you the ultimate tips for a successful bake with every element of the recipe. Highly recommend! I'd genuinely do this session again. Authentic is a genuine description of what Francois provides here. His passion and enthusiasm is contagious.

Insightful and fun class! Francois is a warm and inviting instructor, who's only too happy to help even after the class!

My daughter and I had a wonderful time at Francois' Patisserie Desert making class. Francois was friendly and expertly demonstrated how to make 4 patisserie. Watching the method and desired textures has now made us feel as though we can try to make these ourselves. We thoroughly enjoyed the tasting also! A stool to perch on would have been good but as we were all keen to get in close to see what was happening, we didn't miss it too much! Now we have to practice!
