Join us in supporting this special tribute to Jacques Pépin and his final series!
For nearly 25 years, we've invited Jacques Pépin into our homes as he shared his love for cooking. We celebrate his industrious and historical career with his final cooking series, Jacques Pépin: Heart and Soul. His most personal and revealing series yet, the series will serve as a tribute to his commitment of sharing food with family, friends, students and viewers. Family and friends are always in Jacques' heart and teaching cooking has always been in his soul. His philosophy is that time spent together in the kitchen or around the table cements families and bolsters friendships. Be a part of this unique opportunity as Jacques combines his culinary history and travel experiences with his incomparable technique honed over more than half a century.
The series will also feature family and guests who will cook alongside him and join him in the dining room. Jacques Pépin: Heart and Soul will be intimate, where an ingredient, its source or even the people that supply it, may be the theme of an episode. Whether he is tending his garden, foraging in the woods behind his home or on the local beach, his deep respect for ingredients is clear. From a full meal to a quick snack, his guidance takes viewers from preparation to plating. He teaches the techniques and skills necessary for success in the kitchen. As always, Jacques' love of sharing, whether it's feeding a crowd, or an intimate gathering, and his practical approach to cooking, make Jacques' food accessible to all from novices to competent cooks.
Jacques Pépin: Heart and Soul will begin airing in Fall 2015, premiering 26 new episodes. Multi-media integrated sponsorship opportunities available, including sponsor visibility through broadcast benefits, on-line exposure, companion series book and DVD's and more!
