Francois Morabito - Michelin Star Chef offers Food Tours of France

After 30 years working as Chef in France, meeting producers, winemakers and people passionate about food, Francois Morabito moved with his family to Perth six years ago.

The Australian’s love for good food and wine as well French landscape and culture become as an evidence for him to create authentic and intimate guided gourmet tour experience in France.  

My early life in France

It was around 7 when Francois started his first cooking “experience” following accurately the pastries books recipes.

“I remember spending most of my weekends looking behind the glass of the oven window raised cakes and different baking mixes” - Francois

At 15 and a few months, he started in a hospitality school close to his birth city in Alsace region. After two diplomas he had the rare opportunity to start the most prestigious Chef School, l’Ecole Superieure de Cuisine Francaise in Paris and was graduated top of the class.

After working several years in Michelin star restaurant, Francois and Esther his wife and him launched in 1997 their first own restaurant in Strasbourg. A few years after they had the opportunity to launch a catering and a second restaurant that they ran until early 2013.

My Voyage to Australia and becoming a Michelin star chef.

Never in rest for a new challenge, they moved in July 2013 with their daughter Elena to Adelaide and then Perth.

Francois is well known in Western Australia for his prowess in the kitchen, having been the Head Chef at Alain Fabregues Bistro Des Artistes, opening Stix Bar and Restaurant in 2015 and then the Head Chef at the Weld Club, sharing his Michelin star chef French experience.

My love for French cuisine and its culture led me to start My French Voyage.

However, it was the love of Francois’ home country that was calling and, as a result, My French Voyage was created to share his love of France with Australian and International travelers. 

Early in 2018 they launched their boutique travel company specialising in regional guided gastronomy tours to France, something unique in the marketplace and each tour was created from his and Esther’s personal experiences in each region.

“We want Australians and English speakers to experience France ‘off the beaten path’ and share explore the great food and wine that we know as locals,” - Francois

Guests on Francois’s guided tours will not only get to experience some of the country’s best restaurants, wineries, markets, stay in boutique luxury accommodation and be part of unique tours, but will also experience Francois cooking for them each evening. They want their guests to experience France like a local and truly enjoy the best of the regions.

“I can’t wait to share my love of French food with them, so they can learn about the local cuisine and take a little bit of France home with them when they leave” - Francois

You looked after every detail and took on board our wishes. It was an unusual week with all costs, entry, wine tastings, lunches out etc included in the overall price. Such a good idea! The accommodation was incredibly comfortable, and we enjoyed having a swim in the heated swimming pool.
