12 Strathfield Scene FOOD "For Mossy cooking is an escape from being in the Homicide Squad and for myself, it is a creative outlet from being a lawyer.” --Gabe Moss, celebrity chef and one half of Mossy and Gabe. november 2010 By Bernadette Chua The dynamic cooking duo of Mossy and Gabe from the Channel 7 series My Kitchen Rules will be passing on some of their cooking wisdom at the Sydney Markets over the next few months. Ma "Mossy" Moss and his wife Gabe, from Baulkham Hills, have signed up to present a series of cooking classes at the markets every Saturday morning. Classes run from 8am to 2.30pm and cost $90. e likeable couple say that cooking is a great distraction from the everyday pressures of holding down demanding jobs and raising a family of six children. "Mossy is a cop and I'm a lawyer," says Gabe. " We love to entertain. For Mossy cooking is a release from being in the Homicide Squad and for myself it is a creative outlet from being a lawyer." Gabe says the duo has already conducted six classes at the markets -- and is pleased that so many participants are coming back for more. "We were asked by some guests at a dinner party that we catered for whether we could teach them how to cook the dishes we served," she says. " at led to us to launch our cooking classes." eir cooking workshops cover a number of di erent dishes, including "decadent scrambled eggs" ser ved on sourdough with smoked salmon and rocket, red thai curry, master stock belly of pork and chicken legs and passionfruit sou é -- the perfect complement to any menu. "Mossy's speciality is modern Australian food including boudin, citrus cured salmon, hickory smoked duck breast and Hervey Bay scallops with prosciu o. Mossy loves to cook entrees and mains," says Gabe. "I love to cook desserts such as passionfruit sou é, my famous lime cheesecake, chocolate ganache, coconut pie with mango coulis -- just to name a few. We are a good team because we help each other out during the course of the meal." A er their success on My Kitchen Rules, Mossy and Gabe have dedicated a lot of time to improving their cooking skills and really enjoy pu ing on an entertaining cooking show at the markets. " e best part about being on the show was meeting the judges and other contestants and learning so much about cooking and also travelling Australia and eating great food and drinking beautiful wines," she says. "Our kids suggested we apply [for My Kitchen Rules] because we love to entertain and Mossy besides was always acting like a celebrity chef in the kitchen -- but, of course, back then there were no cameras."
