    Paris Is a Feast – And the Home of a Mushroom, a Ham, and France's Most Famous Soup

    Paris Is a Feast – And the Home of a Mushroom, a Ham, and France's Most Famous Soup

    If Ernest Hemingway described Paris as a feast, it's no surprise. While as an urban center, it could seem as though Paris' terroir is defined by the surrounding countryside, Emily and Caroline are here to show you that's not the whole truth. Delve into underground caverns where button mushrooms grow, and explore the now-defunct marketplace that Emile Zola characterized as the city's belly. It's irreverent and delicious – time to dig in!

    Brittany’s Salt-Laced Butter Was Born of a Salt Tax

    Brittany boasts some of France's most beautiful coastline, so it's no surprise that it's home to some phenomenal seafood.

Tune in to find out why Dijon mustard is a misnomer and which cheese Brillat-Savarin thought was the king of all French fromage.

Rip-roaring good time

This podcast is hilarious. Caroline and Emily have such a fun dynamic, and the content totally opens me up to new (and old!) tastes I would t have gone for before. The recipes are brilliant as well, definitely pulling the petites farçis out for a date night soon

VexGirl ,

Delicious!

As a lover of food, wine, history, and snark, I’m a big fan of this show. The Emily and Caroline are hilarious, the topics are fascinating, and I know from experience that Caroline’s recipes are not to be missed. Looking forward to many more!
