This week on the Joshua David Stein Variety Hour... Half Hour, host Joshua David Stein kicks off the show with the entertaining Food Poem in an English Accent segment featuring Jamie Muffet reading a selected piece. Joshua then ushers in this week's French theme by welcoming Executive Chef Christian Delouvrier of Essex House and most recently of La Mangeoire. Talking about his journey through the culinary world and his passion for food, he ultimately relays that La Mangeoire gave him a place to show his love of food and focus on the techniques and ingredients that define French fare. After the break, Joshua brings in a lovely musical guest: Dahlia Dumont and the Trio du Monde. Playing the idyllic soundtrack for a French bistro, the group graces the show with a live performance including a classic as well an original song that will leave you feeling "très heureux!" This program was brought to you by The International Culinary Center.


"What makes a bistro is a combination of very well crafted food. Consistency every day and, that, I think, is the main thing." [5:28]

"My passion began when I started in this business began with my family in Gascony." [10:05]
