GATO started in my kitchen 👩🍳, when I was dreaming on taking on Gü and showing everyone you could indulge in desserts everyday! 👊💃🍰 Growing up in Provence, I've always loved plants & fruits & vegs 🌿, but have always been the baker in the family. A couple of years ago, I quit my job and studied pâtisserie 🍮🥐 for good at @lecordonbleulondon and developed my first aubergine & chocolate fondant recipe 🍆🍫🍰, still one of our best sellers (only that, at that time, I was baking & my flatmates were sticking the labels on the pots 😂). So much time has passed now and I can't quite believe we're now in some 700 stores in the UK 😱🎉! Find us in @sainsbury @hollandandbarrett & many more independents across the country and let us know what you think! 😘

✨THE BIG REVEAL HAS COME! ✨ Ladies & gentlemen, let us introduce our new range of GATO Dessert Bites 🌿🍰🍫! We are sooooo excited for you all to try, and keeping it all secret has been agony! 😂 You will find them in the dessert aisle 🍮 in @sainsburys (medium & big stores, the list is in our highlights!). Same suuuuper indulgent taste as always 🤤, all entirely plant-based & vegan friendly 🌿 (you know we love sneaking those aubergines & courgettes 🍆🥒 where we can! 😜), and less than 52 calories per bite 😱! We've got 3 flavours to die for: Chocolate fondant & hazelnut ganache, chocolate coconut brownie & chocolate ganache, and salted caramel blondie & chocolate ganache. Who's as excited as we are?! 💃🎉😍 . Kim & I have been working so, so hard on our desserts since the day we launched, and we've been immensely grateful for all your amazing feedback, messages, photos, tags 😍💜🙏. We've loved our ramequins to the moon & back, but the truth is, it has become increasingly hard to continue growing while more and more other desserts adopted the same format. We had to pause, think & innovate, we had to find of a way to revolutionise desserts again. . We were struck by an idea: Why not creating dessert bites, based on our award winning recipes?! Same DNA, but bringing snacking to desserts, and making it possible to have yours anytime: on the go, after the gym, at lunch, dinner, on the sofa, etc. We LOVE the concept and @sainsburys got super excited too (they're awesome!). So, may our little pots rest in peace, and let us welcome the new, better, funnier versions of themselves, and we cannot be happier. We hope you love them as much as we do, and cannot wait for your feedback 😍🙏😘. Kim & Charlotte xxx
Soooo - new GATO identity revealed - What do you guys think?! Do you like it? 😍💃🔥👊
We love it 🤗😂🍪
No raw stuff, no tasteless non sense stuff from us: only the best chef treats. So what best way to put it than Plant-Based Bakers 🌿👩🍳👩🍳🍰?
GATO was born from that: applying the best baking knowledge to making delicious, plant-based desserts that are better for you and the planet 😋🍮🍆🌍!
I left my job 4 years ago to take a year gap and study pâtisserie & baking at the famous @lecordonbleulondon 👩🍳 and have learnt what proper baking is 👊. But Kim & I wanted to make it our own, and do something for us and the planet 😋🍮🍆🌍
✨Day -1 before our big new range reveal ✨💃! Soooo excited to be introducing our new brand identity 😍 - part one here! Kim & I have been reflecting about what GATO is and we agreed it was all about plant-based baked treats that taste AMAZING 🌿🍰.
