Welcome to another episode of GOODfood+wine. For this edition, airing first on Sunday May 3rd 2015 in Paris, you’ll be hearing an interview I did with Paris’ famed Palace Hotel, Le Bristol’s Head sommelier, French-Canadian Marco Pelletier, who gives us some advice on what wines to pair with the French terroir delicacy, La Bonnotte. It’s the world’s most expensive potato, often weighing in at €500 per kilo, and it’s grown only on the Ile de Noirmoutier in France.
La Bonnotte and Caviar
It is said that the only diet Jaccqueline Kennedy Onassis ever put herself on was a caviar-and-potato- once-a-day diet. I have not yet found a specific reference to the potato she used to frame her caviar, but I imagine it could very well have been La Bonnotte. (Read full article here…)
Next, Richard Nahem, founder of a well-known blog about life in Paris, Eye (spelled E-Y-E) Prefer Paris, shares with us some of his Parisian expat insight and also tells us more about his new evening cooking courses.
Next up, veteran of Paris’ food scene, the lovely English Margaret Kemp, speaks to us about some of the city’s fascinating food trends, including a food truck started by a 3* Michelin Chef, Marc Veyrat called mesbocaux.fr .
And for all of us excited about the fresh vegetables and bountiful seasonal produce of spring, Emily Dilling brings us with her to one of Paris’s best-loved fresh markets, the Marché d’Aligré.
