How is COVID-19 affected the food and drinks industry in France. Listen to Part 1 of a two part segment where I interview a dozen different food and drink professionals to find out.
This month I was joined by DAvid Lebovitz as cohost and we chatted with Paris-trained chef Ruba Khoury, chef/owner of Dirty Lemon. She has worked in some big name Michelin starred spots like Frenchie, Septime, and Yam’Tcha. But I am loving her latest project, which is a restaurant and bar with a modern Mediterranean menu plus cocktails. She came into the studio to talk about women’s bars in Paris, her new venture, and what her cultural and geographic background bring to the mix for Dirty Lemon.
This month we celebrate International Women’s Day on March 8th, a great occasion to bring together two fabulous topics: Women & Champagne. To take a deeper dive into these two subjects, I invited Cynthia Coutu, founder of Delectabulles, a champagne networking club for women into the studio to talk about her experience with women as champagne drinkers and champagne makers.
We had him in the studio this month to discuss latest book, which is on a topic close to my heart. Drinking French is an exploration of French drinking culture, including cafe drinks, aperitifs, liqueurs and infusions, cocktails and snacks.
I recently went to a wine tasting with Ramon Bilbao, a Spanish company responsible for a large portion of the rioja wine that is consumed around the world. It got me thinking about how hard it can be to find a large selection of foreign wine in France. France has a lot of great domestic […]
Cocktails are global business. They are in every capital city and are thriving in second cities around the world. I travel when I can both internationally and within France and it’s always interesting to me to see how different cities approach cocktails. So, this month, I’ve invited friends and fellow bloggers, Mel and Anthony, into […]
Sébastien Burel was so much fun to have in the studio this month to share his thoughts and observations on how technology is changing the world of wine and talk about his popup wine shop events and his application that makes it possible: Fermynt. Sébastien is 50 years old (but doesn’t look it!) and was […]
We talk a lot about cocktails, spirits, wine and other alcoholic drinks here on the show. But, none of us (well hopefully none of us) spend our time drinking alone in dark rooms, thinking only about the liquid in the glass. There is more to the experience than just the drink. That’s why we drink […]
Welcome to the rentree (that’s what those of us in France call September/back-to-school/back-to-business) It’s a time where you are catching back up with ‘Real Life” so you might not have time to faff around with cocktails and recipes. So, this month we are talking about something simple: Craft Beer. All you have to do is […]
This month we are chatting with Emily Dilling, author of My Paris Market Cookbook, which was released last month as an updated and revised edition. The new version of the book contains updated information and added content on the Paris food and beverage scene, as well as seasonal recipes for the home cook. Emily is […]
