FRANCE: THE NEW GUARDE EPISODE 31
A new generation of culinary talent is ignoring tradition and experimenting with techniques, reinventing French cuisine. Come with us to meet these young masters: One is changing the face of the French bistro at his restaurant, Le Chateaubriand; another is taking the organic movement in new directions on his farm in the south of France. And we’ll visit a restaurant in a premier art museum, where the chef is creating iconoclastic dishes based on classic ingredients (foie gras and celery rémoulade with popcorn, anyone?). Join us to find out why France could be on the verge of another revolution. Back in the Gourmet kitchen, we’ll see another innovation from French chefs: the Silpat, which has revolutionized pastry-making.
