This May I was invited to participate along with my very good friend chef Guy Savoy in an episode of A Moveable Feast, a fantastic PBS cooking series now in its 5th season. Hosted by the charming Pete Evans, the three of us cooked together in my Parisian apartment, preparing a formidable French feast : Seasonal Asparagus, Steak Frites, a salad that has to be tossed 32 times, an exquisite cheese platter from my favorite cheesemonger Marie Quatrehomme, landmark sourdough bread from Apollonia Poilâne and an expert selection of wines chosen by my friend Juan Sanchez of La Dernière Goutte wine shop.
The expertly orchestrated day included an astonishing crew of 20, and we were eight at table for the culminating feast, including my incredible assistant Emily Buchanan, Juan of course, and great new friends – Betsy and Alon Kasha – who are currently renovating the apartment that will be my new cooking school.
The episode will feed out to PBS stations tomorrow, Saturday September 23. Local stations across the US will air the show at different times, so check local listings to see when you may watch it.
