The leaves are falling, the clocks have been turned back...Autumn is here in all its colorful beauty with Winter just on the horizon... A poem I saw recently by Toulouse-Lautrec goes something like this:
Autumn est le printemps d'hiver, or Autumn is the springtime of winter...
For this episode of Paris GOOD food+wine, we bring you a glimpse into some of the wine bar and small plates culture of Paris. This season, so full of harvests, and the enjoyment of those harvests, easily gets us thinking about glasses of good French red wines shared over plates of savory morsels of meats, sausages and slow-stewed vegetables.
Two young men, both firmly entrenched in the city's fabric of restaurants, bars and wine, speak to us candidly about their businesses and their newest endeavors.
First up we hear from Max Paton Williams, an Englishman who's grown up his whole life here in Paris, making him a thorough Franco-Anglo hybrid. He found his passion for wine and food early on in life and is already making his mark on the local culinary scene. He's currently the manager at Wim à Table which is the celebrated Belgian chef, Wim van Gorp's, newest small-plates and wine bar in the Batignolles district of Paris.
Then we hear from Terence Schweitzer, who's a Franco-American mix. He also spent his entire life in Paris, save for a few years when he lived in Brooklyn. With a couple of buddies he's recently opened a bar/event space/ art gallery in the upper Marais district. It's called Fat.

Both of these guys are under 30 and offer that fresh perspective on where they may be taking the city's culinary landscape in the coming years, starting now.
So, sit back and relax with me, Paige Donner, your host and producer, as you enjoy yet another delicious episode of Paris GOODfood+wine.
