Michelin Star Chef, Francois Morabito, and wife Esther, launch My French Voyage

  • Written by Lorelei Campbell




Michelin Star Chef, Francois Morabito, and wife Esther, officially launched My French Voyage this week, a boutique travel company specialising in regional guided gastronomy tours to France.


Francois is well known in Western Australia for his prowess in the kitchen, having recently been the Head Chef at Alain Fabregues Bistro Des Artistes, opening Stix Bar and Restaurant in 2015 and most recently Head Chef at the Weld Club.


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


We wanted to create something that was a truly authentic and unique travel experience.


We want West Australians to experience France ‘off the beaten path’ and share the hidden beauties and of course explore the great food and wine that we know as locals,” Francois said.


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.


Not only will I make each dinner each night from local and seasonal produce we have collected from the markets that day, guests can cook with me too.


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,” he said.


Francois said My French Voyage was unique in the marketplace and each tour was created from he and Esther’s personal experiences in each region.


Every tour, restaurant we visit, or marketplace we go to is authentically French. We want our guests to experience France like a local and truly enjoy the best of the region.”


The first tour departs in April 2019 and visits the popular French Riviera. Prices for the tour are $3900 per person twin share or $4650 per single inclusive of accommodation, airport transfers, food and all tours. Just 8 places are available.


There are also tours available to the Basque, Dordogne, Burgundy, Alsace and Provence regions, also departing in 2019.


To celebrate our launch, all guided tours booked before 31st December 2018, receive a 10% discount,” Francois added.
