Gabriel goes behind the scenes of this sequence:
“I admit that I was a little surprised. In fact, I was asked to come accompanied by someone, I had chosen my big brother, the one who made me want to get started in the kitchen. Finally, the production told me to come alone, it was weird. Then, I understood that they wanted to play on the moving effect with my mother, who lives far away. ”
The young cook did not expect the shoot to take the turn of a reality show. “I’m not like that, moved, in real life, I’m speed, very happy, there, when you see the edited images”.
Gabriel Lefevre does not yet know when his time in Top Chef objective will be broadcast.
