An Evening with Jacques Pépin
Master chef Jacques Pépin is world-renown as a French chef, television personality and prolific author. He has published more than 25 cookbooks, hosted 14 highly acclaimed public television shows and taught millions of Americans – plus an entire generation of chefs — how to cook. His innovative approach to the kitchen begins with technique and ends with creation, believing that every meal should be a celebration. The success of his book, La Technique, prompted the launch of the acclaimed 1997 PBS series, The Complete Pépin. It was followed by the Daytime Emmy Award-winning Julia and Jacques Cooking at Home with Julia Child.
