About Us



Nathan came to Australia from the United States in 2005 and embarked on his career as a chef. He has always stayed true to the idea that France is the birthplace of modern cuisine. After travelling there and seeing all the country has to offer, Nathan’s passions grew and he became even more inspired to bring a small piece of those experiences back to his restaurants.  

Through cooking classes and wine tastings, Nathan will share some of his secrets and tips for the perfect French feast.  From choosing the best produce at the local markets, selecting the perfect matched wine, and following simple recipes this trip will be a learning experience as well as a memorable holiday.



 Kate’s love for France came later in life with her first visit in 2012. Since then the love affair has continued to grow. With the country offering so much from busy city lifestyle with great restaurants, shops, and museums, to the countryside with its relaxed markets and amazing wine, it is difficult to find fault in this unique place. 

Kate has used her love of all things French in the design of multiple cafes, restaurants, and bars. (Bistro at Banks, Kilgour Street Grocer & Cafe, Union Street Wine Bar, and Bistrot Plume) With each of these she has brought ideas and touches she has picked up along her travels. Kate loves to entertain and host friends, sharing stories and memories from her travels and reliving them with those that have experienced them with her. She looks forward to the exciting things that you will share with her and the stories you will have to tell from this amazing trip.
