Jacques Pepin: Exquisite Meals in a Few Simple Steps (10/21/2008)


Jacques Pepin, Chef; Host, “Fast Food My Way”; Author, More Fast Food My Way
In conversation with Joey Altman, Host, "Bay Cafe", "Appetite for Adventure" and "What’s Cooking with Joey Altman"

Pepin says you do not need to be a master chef to produce amazing dishes in your kitchen. The important thing, he believes, is to understand and use the basics. This legendary culinary expert served as chef to three French heads of state and won France's highest honor, but he disdains food snobbery, preferring instead to share his innovative techniques to keep food simple, fresh and tasty.

This program was recorded in front of a live audience at The Commonwealth Club on October 21, 2008.
