French gastronomy: Is Paris an exception to the rule?


Wherever you go in France, a vast variety of dishes reflect the culture, history and terroir of each region. But while the capital is the heart of cultural life in France, with some of the best restaurants in the world, people don't usually associate Paris with a particular dish. And yet, typical dishes and wines do exist from Paris and the wider region! In this episode of French Connections Plus, Florence Villeminot and Genie Godula explore what the French capital has to offer in terms of gastronomical treasures. They also speak to Geoffrey Finch from Paris Wine Walks about the city’s hidden vineyards and the wine revolution underway in and around Paris.
