Gigi Falanga

Herald Sun - Property - - FRONT PAGE -

BRAZIL­IAN-born pas­try chef Gigi Falanga stars in the new Chan­nel 7 re­al­ity cook­ing show along­side cel­e­brated Aus­tralian patissier Adri­ano Zumbo and Bri­tish chef Rachel Khoo. The 34 year old lives in Fresh­wa­ter, on Syd­ney’s north­ern beaches, with her Aussie boyfriend, Sam Page.

She grew up in Sao Paulo and moved to Aus­tralia in 2004, and has worked the Syd­ney kitchens of Shangri-La, The Bathers’ Pav­il­ion and Jonah’s Whale Beach.

“Aus­tralia is like the bet­ter Brazil,” Ms Falanga said. “It has the amaz­ing beaches and life­style, but it is a lot safer and there are more op­por­tu­ni­ties here. Plus, I think peo­ple help each other out a bit more in Aus­tralia.”
