Presented by Carl Raymond

This season the Metropolitan Opera showcases wonderful examples of French opera as well as operas that have France or specifically Paris as a setting or influence.  The evolution of French grand cuisine interestingly paralleled the development of French grand opera beginning in the late 18thcentury and culminating in the late 19th century, particularly in Paris. 

Join Food Historian and Chef Carl Raymond as he explores how both food and opera came to be grand against the backdrop of the 18th century Comedie Francaise, as well as the glittering world of the 1890’s Belle Epoque and the great Parisian restaurant and café society.
