MasterChef Australia: Secrets and Surprises has delivered big on the guest judges this year, and we’re not even halfway through. We’ve seen Jamie Oliver make a crowd-pleasing return to the MasterChef kitchen, met Sergio Perera, Chris Hemsworth’s personal nutritionist, and watched Donato Toce chill down the kitchen with his pressure test, Messinetta. Now, it’s time for Gabriel Gaté.

Gabriel Gaté is a French-born Australian chef, television presenter, and author, best known for his expertise in French cuisine and has been promoting French cooking in Australia for several decades.
