Jacques Pépin: The Art of Craft

Sponsored by SLO Provisions

Discover the story of French-American chef Jacques Pépin, a young immigrant with movie-star looks and a charming Gallic accent. His mastery of cooking and teaching helped him become an early food icon, joining James Beard and Julia Child among the handful of Americans who transformed our nation’s food. Not content cooking in French palaces, where he was the personal chef to three French presidents, Pépin’s journey took him into the kitchens of the then-in-vogue Howard Johnson’s, where his commitment to great taste and technique influenced American popular food. Narrated by Stanley Tucci. 54 min. USA. Watch the trailer here
