Michelin chef Marco Pierre White will step out of his British kitchen and on to the stage when he returns to Australia in May for his first tour of live-on-stage theatre shows.
Marco Pierre White - Out Of The Kitchen will take place in Brisbane at the Great Hall, BCEC on May 23, in Sydney on May 25 at the State Theatre and at Melbourne's Hamer Hall on May 30.
Marco will take us on a journey from his humble beginnings, arriving in London from the north with "£7.36, a box of books and a bag of clothes" to begin his classical training as a commis with Albert and Michael Roux at Le Gavroche.
By the age of just 33, Marco became first British and youngest chef at the time to be awarded three Michelin Stars.
In 1999, he returned the Michelin Stars.
Although White worked for 17 years to pursue his ambition, he ultimately found that, in spite of his accomplishments, recognition and fame, his career did not provide him with adequate returns in his personal life.
A chef, restaurateur and television personality, he has been dubbed "the first celebrity chef" and the "enfant terrible" of the UK restaurant scene.
Marco was in the vanguard of a food revolution.
He was the first of the rock 'n roll chefs who inspired thousands of today's chefs, and trained notable chefs such as Mario Batali, Shannon Bennett, Heston Blumenthal, Gordon Ramsay and Curtis Stone.
He ushered in French classism to a new era.
This is an evening about the magic of food, the allure of restaurants, of determination, grit and endless pursuit of personal fulfilment.
Meet one of the world's iconic chefs live on stage.
