You know you're a force to be reckoned with when you're perhaps the only person who makes Gordon Ramsay shake in his boots. Dubbed the first 'celebrity chef', Marco Pierre White – chef, restaurateur and television personality – is heading Down Under and bringing his first live-on-stage tour, Out of the Kitchen, to major cities across Australia.
You can catch White (who at just 33 years old became the first British and youngest chef at the time to be awarded three Michelin stars), live on stage discussing everything from his humble beginnings to the classical culinary training he undertook with Albert and Michael Roux at Le Gavroche. It's set to be an evening dedicated to determination, grit and the endless pursuit of personal fulfillment, as well as a love for the magic of food and the allure of restaurants and kitchens.
And it's not just Ramsay who holds White in such high esteem. The late Anthony Bourdain said, "Marco Pierre White gave us all voice, gave us hope, a new template for survive[al]. [He] gave us power. It all started here.”
Jock Zonfrillo, MasterChef judge and restauranteur, says that “of all the chefs I worked for, he was the greatest teacher”.
White will start his Australian tour in Brisbane, before heading to Sydney and finally to Melbourne's Hamer Hall on May 30. Presale tickets are available now, and general public tickets go on sale on February 17. Don't miss the opportunity to see one of the world's top chefs in person and get your tickets ASAP.
