Jacques Pepin's Essentials of French Cooking I
What You Will Learn
Before there were celebrity chefs, there was Jacques Pepin. As a chef, teacher, author and TV personality, Pepin has inspired professionals and home cooks around the world with his passion for French cooking. Since 1998, Pepin has hosted more than a dozen PBS shows, including the Emmy-winning Jacques and Julia Cooking at Home with Julia Child.
In his latest cookbook Essential Pepin, Jacques has hand-picked and updated more than 700 of his favorite recipes—from the thousands he’s created in his six-decade career. The comprehensive collection spans the many styles of Jacques’ cooking, from homey country French to haute cuisine. Whether he’s making contemporary American dishes or exotic cuisine from the Far East, Jacques finds the shortest, surest route to flavor, avoiding complicated techniques.
In this class based on his book, you’ll learn to prepare a variety of Pepin’s classic dishes—from a savory soufflé to a decadent chocolate mousse. Our chef instructor will share tidbits of Jacques’ wisdom and walk you through the steps of some of his essential techniques.
