Maybe the best thing to come out of lockdown is the surge in creativity of our home-cooked meals. The Chez Toi podcast wants to take these meals one step further and pair your new creations with the perfect wine and most complementary cheese. Hear from the home cooks themselves as they describe the dish and its inspiration.
Then, wine expert Caroline Conner and cheese expert Emily Monaco will work their magic to show you how a simple recipe can be transformed from an every day at-home experience into a gourmet meal chez toi.
If you have a recipe you would like to contribute, please email hello@ParisUndergroundRadio.com. We would love to hear from you!
