SM Nets PHP7 Billion Earnings In First Half Due To COVID-19 Impact

It’s the stunning country that most travelers dream of crossing off their list, the City of Lights, the City of Love, but more importantly, a place known for its haute cuisine and fine wines, and it’s where Metro Channel’s “The Crawl” heads on to next—France.

The mouth-watering exploration is led by fashion and design enthusiast, Stephanie Kienle-Gonzalez, who also hosts the home and living show, “Metro Home.” She is accompanied by Jhonel Faelnar, a topnotch advanced sommelier hailed by Wine & Spirits magazine as the Best New Sommelier of New York, and the wine director of Atomix, a star restaurant recognized by Wine Enthusiast as one of the Best Wine Restaurants in the USA.

Stephanie’s profound respect for food and design and Jhonel’s expertise on wine culture is surely the perfect combo to guide viewers in relishing the intricate wine-and-dine scene as well as the breathtaking sites in France. Their journey starts at Café du Marche, which Stephanie used to frequent during her student days. There, they feast on some favorites like Soupe A L’Oignon, Confit de Canard, and Escargots de Bourgogne.

Meanwhile, Le Café Alain Ducasse and Manufacture de Chocolat Alain Ducasse may just be a blissful haven for coffee and chocolate lovers respectively, due to their unique coffee recipes and some of the finest chocolates in the world. The pair also drops by Le Servan, a casual bistro founded by French-Filipina sisters Tatiana and Katia Lehva that serves exceptional French food with an international and Asian twist

Naturally, Steph and Jhonel wouldn’t pass up the opportunity to pop in on the world-class wine and champagne houses in France like Rare Champagne, famous for its quality vintages, some of which date back to 1976 and Champagne Piper-Heidsieck, the official champagne supplier of the biggest events in Hollywood.

They also visit Vosne-Romanée, a tiny village home to 60 wineries, and meet the Lady Of Burgundy, Anne Gros of Domaine Anne Gros, which offers various activities for tourists like hour-long cellar tours and wine tastings. They also stop at Maison M. Chapoutier, one of the earliest names in the Rhone Valley, committed to organic and biodynamic farming methods.

The trip ends with an extraordinary meal prepared by Chef Francis Fauvel, Head Chef of the Ducasse Sur Seine. A fitting conclusion to this incomparable culinary and scenic explosion, the hosts of “The Crawl France” tour Paris while feasting on excellent food concocted by the legendary 21-Michelin star chef, Alain Ducasse.

Witness and taste the magnificence of France in “The Crawl France” on Metro Channel this Sunday (December 15) at 7pm. The show can also be streamed via iWant. For updates, follow @abscbnpr on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram and visit www.abscbn.com/newsroom.
