All Episodes

My guest today is Rachel Signer and we talk about her recently released book „You had me at Pét-Nat“. Our conversation tackles the questions of how to move on with your life when you’re feeling stuck, how to make bigger than life decisions while life just happens at you fast, and about the state of things in gastronomy and the natural wine world. In her memoire, Rachel, - who is also the founder and publisher of the natural wine magazine „Pipette“ - reflects on her life in recent years. The book starts with her escape from questionable gastro jobs and mediocre dates in Brooklyn with a vague plan to build a life in Paris fueled by the hope to co-own a wine bar on the Seine’s right bank someday. After accidentally falling in love with an iconic Australian natural winemaker on a trip to Georgia, Rachel eventually ends up living on a farm in Australia’s Adelaide Hills where she makes her own natural wine, writes and raises her two year old daughter.
