Paris GOODfood+wine on WorldRadioParis

October 2015 and here we are on our second episode in our second season of Paris GOODfood+wine.

 

This being the month of Halloween, a beloved North American holiday, we have a couple of our youngster expats ringing in on what they remember and love the most about celebrating Halloween back home.

Autumn also means cosy evenings by the fireplace. And what’s a better companion to that than a glass of fine Port Wine. Mr. Manuel Cabral joins us for this segment to give us hints and suggestions of what pairs nicely with that glass of Tawny or Ruby port wine. He’s the Executive Director of the Instituto dos Vinhos do Douro et do Porto of Portugal.

Port Wine Pairs Well With Chocolate and Cosy Evenings By the Fireplace

Gilles Pudlowski, restaurant critic and food writerAnd for this season, we’re spicing up our restaurant reviews by adding yet another voice, namely Gilles Pudlowski who is a renown French restaurant critic specialized in Paris restaurants. For this episode, he’ll be introducing us to Chef Jean- François Piège’s new restaurant just opened in September here in Paris called Le Grand Restaurant.
