Essential Pepin

FOOD TELEVISION – Tuesdays from 2 October, 3.30pm, 7.30pm, 11.30pm

Essential Pepin showcases Jacques’ masterful technique and his ease and flair with dishes ranging from classical Escoffier Quenelles to honey Braised Beef in Red Wine, to Poached Trout in Vegetable Broth and simple Chicken with Tarragon Butter. Jacques cooks what he loves and his mouth-watering treats include basic French Fries, Soda Bread, rustic Tomatoes Maison and Brioche. Desserts range from the uncomplicated Quick Almond Plum Cake and Chocolate Truffettes, to the ultimate – a perfect Apricot and Pistachio Souffl�. It’s no wonder that Julia Child called Jacques “the best chef in America.”
