After having worked as a chef de partie of patisserie at the Hyatt in Canberra, Paul found himself lured overseas. Then, after meeting Marie in Canada, travelled with her to provincial France.
“Marie’s family are farmers in Saint Philbert de Bouaine which is known for fine Muscat, brioche and butter,” Paul told us. In fact, this Francophile couple would probably still be there, living off the land, if Paul’s Visa had not expired.
Thankfully for us, they chose to return to Australia and eventually, after visiting his sister, fell in love with the Ballarat region.
