GRUB CLUB PART II: A SPANISH FEAST IN BUSHWICK

I joined Chuck Webster for another of his Grub Clubs. He had asked me to pair wines with a spanish feast. It is always a blast doing an underground supper club with this artist/chef/all around righteous dude and the night went wonderfully! Chuck’s friend had caught a migrating sea bass that morning and donated it to Grub Club. Chuck proceeded to encrust the fish with salt and what you are about to witness is the result!

This was my firat attempt to shoot video on the ipad so the aspect ratio is a bit weird. But I will get it right next time!

Enjoy!

Five Days In Languedoc- Roussillon: Chateau De La Negly Part II

As we worked our way towards the Pyrenees and into Roussillon we made a stop in La Clape. We were fortunate enough to be able to visit one of the most renowned wine makers of the appellation as well as the entire region, Chateau De La Negly.

The story of this chateau is a love affair with land and vine. A man, Jean Paul Rosset who inherited this mediterranean wonderland from his parents and turned it into some of the most celebrated wine in the area.

The information in this video is so plentiful that I had to put it into three parts or else it would be the length of a short film. In this video Cyril Chamontin, Jean Pual Rosset’s passionate winemaker takes us into the winery to give a peek at the winemaking process. The diligence and focus of Cyril’s process is infectious!

Enjoy the tour and get ready for the next video when we meet the man who made it all happen!

The story of this chateau is a love affair with land and vine. A man, Jean Paul Rosset who inherited this mediterranean wonderland from his parents and turned it into some of the most celebrated wine in the area.

The information in this video is so plentiful that I had to put it into two parts or else it would be the length of a short film. In this video Cyril Chamontin, Jean Pual Rosset’s passionate winemaker takes us on a tour of the many vineyards on their property. I have never seen so many different soil types and terroirs in one place and my wine geek brain was on excitement overload.

Enjoy the tour and get ready for the next video when we taste the wine and meet the man who it all happened.

Five Days In Languedoc- Roussillon: Lunch in Narbonne

We took a break from vineyards for lunch in the ancient town of Narbonne, the agreed upon birthplace of French wine culture. Join me as we take a tour of one of the most emmense food markets I have ever seen.

I can’t really explain how wonderful this lunch was. The images must speak for themselves. This wonder of a place is the definition of local food. and the restuarants and bars that populate it are serving up some of the most delicious dishes.

I took the flip cam in with me so as not to freak out the locals a bigger camera (it was their lunchtime) but got some great footage of the scale of Les Halles de Narbonne.

Oh and this one is only about 6mins or so.

Watch. Share. Love. Enjoy!

Five Days In Languedoc- Roussillon: Abbaye De Valmagne

Here is our third stop of our trip.

Our last stop on the first day was Abbaye De Valmagne. This was very exciting because the area in which this Abbaye resides has just been awarded a new appellation, Gres De Montpellier. Once part of the larger Coteaux Du Languedoc now they can say they are part of a newer, more specific appellation and create a legacy around it. They, of course, already have a long legacy wrapped up in some really interesting history but this will bring them into the future.

This one clocks at about twelve minutes. SO sit down grab a sip of wine and enjoy! Oh, and SHARE SHARE SHARE with your friends!

Here I breakdown the largest appellation in the Roussillon part of the Languedoc Roussillon
