ESSENTIAL PÉPIN is the culmination of chef Jacques Pépin's 60 plus years of experience in the kitchen. In this new series, Jacques welcomes his daughter Claudine, granddaughter Shorey and lifelong friends and colleagues to cook with him.
In each ingredient-driven episode, the 75-year-old culinary legend provides step-by-step instruction for creating a mouth-watering dish and demonstrates his impeccable technique, from chopping an onion or peeling a softly boiled egg to breaking down a leg of lamb. The series encourages novices to take their first culinary steps and entices seasoned home chefs to try something new.
"Fine Finishes" - Never having tasted Cheesecake with Apricot-Blueberry Sauce until arriving in America, Jacques’ brother loved it! And this is the recipe that Jacques made for him on visits to the US. Jacques also prepares the classic and creamy Flan a la Vanille with Caramel-Cognac Sauce and a simple but decadent Chocolate Mousse.
