This week, we’re delving into modern French dining – away from the nation’s confines. We sit down with the founder of Bistro Freddie in London to find out why a wave of new French-inspired spots has been popping up throughout the city and beyond. Also in the programme: Charlotte McDonald-Gibson tells us about the role that haute cuisine plays in Washington and Gregory Scruggs is in Seattle to meet the man putting his own spin on Gallic classics.
