Experience Paris like a local in this special episode of Moveable Feast with Fine Cooking. Host Pete Evans pays a visit to two culinary icons: chefs Patricia Wells and Guy Savoy, who collaborate to cook an authentic feast in Patricia’s beautiful home. Patricia, a celebrated author and chef who left the United States in the 1980s to pursue writing and cooking in France, guides Pete to the President Wilson Market for gorgeous, fresh produce. Guy, whose eponymous restaurant remains a stalwart fixture in the culinary world, takes Pete to Quatrehomme, a fromage institution to sample the best cheeses that Paris has to offer. Then, our chefs prepare a comforting and classic French feast, featuring a salad that must be tossed 32 times, steak frites, an elegant preparation of asparagus, and of course, plenty of wine and cheese.
