Cap 24 - Alessandro Di Sarno au Salon des vins et vignerons

Difficulty: difficulty - Intermediate Intermediate

France

Alessandro visits a wine festival with his breathalyzer to make sure that nothing more than some innocent dégustation (sampling) is going on. Some of the people he interviews fail the test, but one expert claims it might not be that accurate to begin with!

Cap 24 - Les grandes gueules et leurs recettes, vu par Alessandro

Difficulty: difficulty - Advanced Advanced

France

Viewer Discretion Advised

Alessandro visits with some chefs on the occasion of the launch of their book, "Les Grandes gueules et leurs recettes" (Big Mouths and Their Recipes). They take their profession very seriously and are perfectionists like the famous Vatel, King Louis XIV's chef, who was so distraught when a seafood delivery was delayed that he ran a sword through his stomach. Modern chefs need to keep their sense of humor. They are, thankfully, no longer at the mercy of a powerful king, but the Internet can be just as unforgiving.
