Alain Ducasse to launch a food website

Alain Ducasse wants to be a blogger. According to Le Monde and L’Express, D and his minions will be launching a food website in May that publishes recipes, video tutorials, restaurant addresses and information about ingredients. A few elements will be free – the rest will require a fee of 4-5 euros per month.

They’ve already acquired the free recipe website cooking 750g. and we at Paris by Mouth are just waiting for our offer 🙂

Not Drinking Poison in Paris (2015) “I can’t think of another city on earth where such a polished, borderline nightclubby space would house a radical wine program like Vermynck’s. His selection remains unapologetically fringe-natural, but now the raw, untutored wines of Philippe Jambon‘s acolytes share layout space with maîtres like Pierre Overnoy… I can’t shake the feeling that the cuisine is just not yet as sharp as it was at the last location, however.”

Racines

Founding chef Pierre Jancou has moved on, but the roots remain. New chef Renaud Marcille is bringing a touch of elegance to the product-driven, market cooking, served, as always, with natural wine, inside the city’s oldest covered passage.

Burgundy dirt to receive World Heritage status?

According to Decanter, the French government is trying to score a place for the vineyards of Burgundy and Champagne on the UNESCO world heritage list. The soils of Saint-Emilion have already made the cut.

If you’re wondering “why bother?”, a spokesperson for Champagne sector council CIVC told decanter.com that the designation would “help consumers to understand that Champagne – the wine – only comes from the Champagne region.” The underlying assumption is that the folks drinking California pink “Champagne” have actually heard of UNESCO…

Serious cocktails in an unpretentious lounge near the Bastille with good bar snacks to boot. The attention to detail, chill atmosphere and intriguing menu make this an industry darling.

Vivant

First there was Vivant (opened next door in 2011). Then Pierre Jancou opened this space in 2012, calling it Vivant Cave. Both spaces have since been sold, but this wine bar has retained the name Vivant (dropping the word “cave”). We suppose the confusion has kept wine lovers coming in, but we haven’t been back yet under the new ownership.

Le Fooding (2015) “On vient autant chez Grazie pour les cocktails de folie, secoués derrière le massif comptoir par Ricardo et Alejandra (Harigatorade, No Fear No Pear… 12€) que pour humer l’air du temps et l’odeur des pizzas (aux farines et produits 100% italiens) sortant du four à bois. Nos préférées: la Bawini (spianata calabra, saucisson piquant), et l’Aurora (tomate, mozza, basilic, tout simplement).”
