Gabi & Steph AKA La Dolce Dolls are cooks and former contestants on Sky Living’s ‘My Kitchen Rules’. They were the glamorous duo representing the North of England on the show and were described by Michelin starred chef Jason Atherton as “The next generation of great food.” They are extremely passionate about food and the chemistry between them is that of genuine best friends.
Using their appearance on the show as a platform to further their food career, they are currently travelling around the UK’s finest street food events and festivals in their La Dolce Dolls van. The girls have appeared at Manchester’s BeatStreet #FoodFight, and have future plans to collaborate with them in the summer. They have also taken part in FoodFightFriday, a very successful street food event at Liverpool’s camp and furnace. This summer they will have a stall at Liverpool food and drink festival, the waterfront festival, and Liverpool’s Golf Open.
The girls met when they were both waitressing in Gabi’s Auntie’s Italian cafe. They bonded over their mutual passion for food, and grabbed any chance they got to use the cafe’s facilities – sometimes taking over if the chef was having a day off!
Gabi comes from an Italian family, so she has grown up in a rich Italian environment. Steph wanted to travel and learn more about Italian food and culture, so she chose to work and live in Bologna – the culinary capital of the world and Italy’s most renowned food paradise. While soaking up everything Italian, Steph took up teaching English as a foreign language, and this funded her food travels. She learned how to make pasta, gelato (Bologna has the only ice cream university in the world) and her passion for Italian cuisine grew and grew.
On Steph’s return from Italy, Gabi & Steph took to the French Alps, to run a luxury chalet together. Here they worked together catering for guests each week, cooking breakfast, afternoon tea, picnics for the slopes and a three course gourmet meal every evening. Many hours were spent in the kitchen that winter, and the girls were the first chalet hosts in the history of Meribel to use their ski passes only ten times! Their time was much better spent in the kitchen!
It was in Meribel that they decided to take over the world with their food! The dream was always to get back to England, buy a food truck and travel the globe, sharing their passion for Italian street food with everyone they meet.
