Andrew Talks to Chefs

Episode 179: Timothée Prangé (Little Red Door, Paris)

Episode Summary

The proprietor of the hottest cocktail bar in Paris recounts his journey from aspiring chef to celebrated bartender.

Episode Notes

As a child, Timothée Prangé dreamed of becoming a chef, but somewhere along the way, he took a detour into music as a trumpet player, and then into the vibrant world of modern cocktails. His Little Red Door is the hottest cocktail bar in Paris, where the menu's concept changes annually, earning the establishment abundant honors including longstanding inclusion in the World's 50 Best Bars.  While in Antwerp for the World's 50 Best Restaurants* ceremony last week, Andrew had a chance to sit down with Timothée to discuss LIttle Red Door's unique approach to cocktails, including this year's menu, titled "Grounded," with original drinks focused on a select group of farmers and the vegetables, fruits, dairy, and legumes they grow, raise, and harvest.
