Chef Jacques Pépin launches new website

French chef Jacques Pépin, and host of public television’s Essential Pépin, has recently launched his KQED sponsored website where you can find episodes of his show and recipes categorized by ingredient.

I have been “Youtubing” the resourceful Mr. Pépin for a while now to get tips on how to master an omelet or debone a chicken, so I am excited to see an organized and direct portal now available online.

Jacques Pepin was the man who introduced me to cooking shows. GPTV was always filled with him, and Martin Yan, and Julia, Jeff Smith, and of course Justin Wilson. I loved them all, but Jacques totally fueled my love.

I loved the shows he did with Julia Child. He was so kind and tender with her.

@Lisa you took the words out of my mouth… He seemed such a gentleman and so affectionate to Julia… a very special bond…

But the salt measuring thing that Justin Wilson did with the back of his hand and his stories were kinda cool.

He was a celebrity chef long before anyone knew what a celebrity chef was…and I don’t think it changed him one bit! He is genuine and humble. I’ve never heard him say one bad thing about other chefs, their techniques or their restaurants. A real gentleman!

I remember studying his book La Technique in the 70’s for my first Maitre d’ job. Have kept up with him every since. Truly a professional and gentleman.

Gene………thanks for the website info. Looks like many Atl fans will be checking him out. I still have some of my father’s LP’s of Justin Wilson when he was doing comedy. Long before he became a tv chef. Last time I saw him was at the Taste of Macon in ‘97. He was moving around in a wheelchair by then. He did manage to do one brief demonstration and sign a few books before leaving the Coliseum. It was worth the drive, he signed an LP jacket for me!

Madeleine Kamman, Julia Child, and Jaques Pépin are the three most influential chefs to me. I grew up watching them on PBS. Their style and methods translated to me easily, they were not “showy” or overly complicated. More than their recipes, it was their technique that I learned.
