In this episode of the SOMM TV podcast, Jason Wise chats with Chef Kate Hill. Hill is the host of the SOMM TV culinary show, Cooking with Wine. The show takes viewers to her 18th Century French farmhouse “Camont” in Gascony, France and showcases dishes that are inspired from some of the most famous wine regions in the country.
Hill’s recipes are a reflection of her French surroundings and the adaption of regional techniques. Episodes feature everything from Magret du Canard (duck breast with wine sauce) to Civet de Sanglier et Escargots (wild boar stew and escargot).
During the podcast episode, Hill describes her journey into the culinary world and reminisces about discovering the nuances in cooking from region to region. Those unique distinctions led to the theme of Cooking with Wine, with each episode focusing on a regional speciality.
