About this Event
Chef Jacques Pépin is, as Food and Wine put it recently, “one of the food world’s living legends.” We are honored to host an evening with Chef Jacques, as he launches his newest cookbook. Alex Prud’homme, author of Dinner with the President, will speak with Pépin about food, life and art, accompanied by slides of Pépin’s beautiful and original paintings. In his latest book, Cooking My Way: Pépin suggests easy and efficient techniques that save money, time, and cleanup effort, without sacrificing taste. 150 simple recipes—for Zucchini-Tomato Gratin, Salmon with Pesto Butter, and Garlicky Romaine with Croutons-- are interspersed with Pépin’s own painted menus and illustrations. As usual, Pépin creates an intimate rapport with his reader, sharing his artwork and memories of his career in an enjoyable narrative that is both a visual and culinary feast.
This is a book launch event and books will be available for purchase.
