 In 1789 France, just prior to the Revolution, gastronomy is strictly the domain of the aristocrats; indeed, the prestige of a noble house is entirely dependent on the quality and reputation of its table. So, when the talented but prideful cook Manceron serves an unapproved dish of his own creation at a dinner hosted by the self-entitled Duke of Chamfort, the repercussions are brutal, and he is promptly dismissed.The wounded Manceron swears off his passion and retreats with his son to a regional inn visited only infrequently by travellers, and where vegetable soup is the common meal. But when a mysterious woman arrives and offers to pay to become his apprentice, the stage is set for a wildly enjoyable tale of reignited passion, mentorship and revenge… and of the creation of France’s very first restaurant.

“Delectable. You’ll smile a lot… Be warned, do not watch this movie on an  empty stomach.” LE PARISIEN

TAKE ME TO PARIS | PAULINE MAUDY (MZAZA)

Take Me to Paris is a show about belonging, about identity. It’s about our search for an idealised version of heaven on earth,

Napoleon’s fascination for Australia, Australia’s fascination for the city of love and everything in between

event vive la france

 

This year, due to COVID-19 pandemic it was necessary to cancel our annual celebratory dinner party. To mark the French National Day, a special video presentation was put together; it can be watched on the link here or by clicking on the photo below. It features an address by the President of AF Gold Coast, songs in French by Huguette and a virtual walk in Paris. (Please note, the begining of the recording is at the 10:30 point of the video.)
