Alexis Gabriel is a self-taught home cook and food fanatic living in Paris. Although born and raised in the city, he actually got hooked on food abroad, travelling the world with his parents as a child. As he says, ‘My food memories have no borders’. In 2014 he launched his YouTube channel ‘Alex French Guy Cooking’, offering a fresh and funny perspective on French food. When Jamie Oliver hosted an international competition to find the next YouTube Chef, Alex made a recipe called 30-minute Paris-Bangkok stew, mixing French tradition with world ingredients and using cheats for techniques. He got through to the final and is now a fully fledged member of Jamie’s Food Tube network. A self-confessed food geek, Alex loves to experiment in the kitchen, explaining the science behind his recipes and showing how to make not just delicious dishes but cooking equipment from piping bags to pasta machines. His YouTube channel has a huge worldwide following and he is especially popular in the UK, US, Canada, Australia and Germany. Alex’s first book, Just a French Guy Cooking, was published by Quadrille.
