The Prasad Project is a philanthropic expression of the Siddha Yoga Path. PRASAD (Philanthropic Relief, Altruistic Service And Development) is a not-for-profit organization committed to improving the quality of life of economically disadvantaged people around the world. Its primary philosophy is one of self-reliance.

The PRASAD Project’s outreach programs help people to achieve lives of self-reliance and dignity by offering assistance in health, education and sustainable community development in India, dental care in the United States and eye care in México.

The word PRASAD originally comes from the Sanskrit. This is something that the Colombian born Avi and the Mexican born Indra will explain more to us about during our interview.

We sat down with the both of them together at Indra’s delightful new restaurant La Condesa in the SoPi district, that’s short for South Pigalle, in the 9th arrondissement of Paris. Chef Carrillo was named as one of Paris’s top young chefs in 2016 by Gault & Millau and between the two of them, Avi and Indra have worked in such exotic places as India and Mexico City as well as mythical culinary lands like Lyon and Paris.

For the second half of our show, get ready for a Master Class with the renowned Willi Klinger of the Austrian Wine Board.

Austrian wines offer much more than Grüner Weltliner, delicious as it may be.

In fact, at an Austrian Wine Tasting here in Paris I was frankly surprised and delighted to discover their red wines.

Crisp, light and elegant, these cold climate reds can stand up to the best and are well worth discovering especially while they still maintain their very accessible price points. So have a listen as Willy Klinger, this masterful wine professional discusses everything from Grüner Weltliner to Wolfgang Puck. And lots of Austrian wines in between.

So sit back, pour yourself a glass of whatever is chilled or whatever you’ve been tempted to open thus far but have been waiting for just the right moment, and relax into this international episode of Paris GOODfood+wine where all culinary roads seem to lead to Paris.
