In my continued extra episodes of Paris Cocktail Talk discussing the effects of COVID-19 on food and drinks in France, I’m speaking with Emily Dilling author of the Paris Paysanne blog and My Paris Market Cookbook for some anecdotal chat about life in the country and how the virus is affecting her, local winemakers and farmers in rural France.
Emily is originally from California, and has called France home for the last fourteen years. A writer who is passionate about food and the people who grow and make it, she runs ParisPaysanne.com, a blog dedicated to discovering Paris markets and French terroir. She can often be found exploring Paris’s craft coffee, beer, and food scene, tasting wine and making beer in the Loire, or growing tomatoes in her garden.
She joined on earlier episode to talk about her inspiration behind the book and how she incorporated her take on the Paris natural wine, craft beer and cocktail scenes into it. She was also on Part 2 of our two-part special episode on how COVID 19 is affecting France’s Food and Drink businesses.
