Bordeaux still until today defines the finest red wine in the world and for many winemakers whether in California, Italy or Spain in the old world or Chile, Argentina or California in the new, it is the benchmark. World renown is the famous 1855 Classification where upon the Emperor Napoleon the 3rd, wanted to display the best wines of Bordeaux at the Universelle de Paris Exposition, or The World’s Fair in today’s terms and so requested of the Bordeaux brokers to make a list of the highest quality properties.

 From this, the 1855 Classification remains today with just a few changes, famous names Château Lafite, Château Latour, Château Margaux, Haut Brion and Château Mouton Rothschild are recognized around the globe.  But what of the many other incredible wineries, Bordeaux is a large wine region, with so much to offer, with many wineries that produce delectable, elegant powerful superb wines and at great value?

 So on this show we introduce you to one such winery, located on the left bank in the Medoc, with the largest vineyard and largest producer of wine in this region, this brand, a beautiful award winning wine, is Château Larose Trintaudon which we will explore with our first guest.

We’d like to welcome Franck Bijon, the Technical Director and CEO of Château Larose Trintaudon to share the story of this winery and a little about the importance and romance of the historical wine region of Bordeaux.

Macarons have been all rage in last couple of years! The rise of macaron dates as far back as the Revolutionary France during the 1700s. Legend has it that French nuns baked and sold these during difficult times to help them pay for day-to-day essentials. It’s also believed that macarons had a much more humble beginning, having started out with no filings or the array of unique flavours that we’ve come to associate them with. We’ve all tasted the notoriously sweet and airy macarons that come in the usual flavours of chocolate, strawberry, coffee, and lemon. But today is different- today we get introduced to the beauty of savoury macarons, orange & cumin, goat cheese and figs and onions, olive tapenade, Porcini mushrooms to name a few.  

And who better to discuss the lesser-known French treat than Moroccan-Canadian Kaoutsar “Katsy” Entifi from RepChampion Canada. Katsy imports only the most delicious, difficult-to-acquire goods from France Originelle, and is making the Greater Toronto Area the latest new home for savoury macarons.

These aren’t your run-of-the-mill macarons. France Originelle’s goods are hand-made in France and are only made using the highest quality, freshest ingredients. You can taste the French pride in these macarons, and it’s no wonder why they’re used in many of France’s most prestigious sporting events. Their gourmet savoury macarons have even won Le Trophée de la Gastronomy, one of France’s highest distinctions.

We explore the pairing of wine with the macarons and more. What a unique and interesting spin! These macarons are available to purchase on line and make a beautiful gift too.

 

 

  And what about the food!!! Our go-to chef for tips for unique and delish dishes.. the winner of CHOPPED Canada on Food Network Canada JohnRoss Woodland.
