This episode of Paris GOODfood+wine is dedicated to Paris. Especially to the families, loved ones and friends of the innocent lives that were taken and injured #solidarité in the November 13th attacks here. It’s impossible to imagine the pain they are in and the grief they will have to overcome to pick up the pieces of shattered lives.

Paris is a small city. There isn’t a one of us who wasn’t affected directly or indirectly. Whether that means we lost a friend, colleague, relative or loved one, or know someone who did. On France’s declared Day of Remembrance, I went out to the site of Le Petit Cambodge and Le Carillon to pay my respects to my fellow Parisians.
The world is also a small place. And we must all ask ourselves, any of us who is a mother, a son, a brother, sister, father or daughter, where will this end? What will it take to live in a world where this kind of violence does not exist?
Courageously, for if the French are anything, they are courageous, as are their allies around the world, the Cop21 talks about climate change and environmental resolutions are still being held here just outside the city. To respect that global initiative, Paris GOOD food + wine is running an interview I did last year with the Cellar Master, Gilles Descotes, of the esteemed champagne house, Bollinger.
