Emily Dilling on Eating and Drinking in Paris

52 Martinis Paris Cocktail Talk

This month we are chatting with Emily Dilling, author of My Paris Market Cookbook, which was released last month as an updated and revised edition. The new version of the book contains updated information and added content on the Paris food and beverage scene, as well as seasonal recipes for the home cook.

Emily is originally from California, and has called France home for the last fourteen years. A writer who is passionate about food and the people who grow and make it, she runs ParisPaysanne.com, a blog dedicated to discovering Paris markets and French terroir. She can often be found exploring Paris’s craft coffee, beer, and food scene, tasting wine and making beer in the Loire, or growing tomatoes in her garden. She joined us to talk about her inspiration behind the book and how she incorporated her take on the Paris natural wine, craft beer and cocktail scenes into it. 

Cocktail of the Month: Fifth Season

Ingredients

2 oz dark rum

1⁄2 oz Blueberry and Lemon Zest Shrub (see above)

3 large ice cubes

Dash ginger beer

Lemon zest

Preparation

Shake rum and shrub with ice. Serve in a martini glass straight up, topped with a dash of ginger beer and garnished with a small slice of lemon zest.

This cocktail was created by Forest Collins of 52 Martinis. Based on the theme of stretching out the summer, Forest used rum, a splash of Blueberry and Lemon Zest Shrub, and ginger beer for a perky cocktail that makes you long for an extra season of summer.
