Jacques Pepin: Fast Food My Way Previous Broadcasts

Sunny Delights (Episode #126)

KQED Life: Fri, Jun 10, 2011 -- 5:30 PM

Summertime and the cooking should be easy. Keep the heat in the tortillas and out of the kitchen with a quick, spicy Quesadilla. Check the farmers' market for the freshest tomatoes to make Tomato Tartare with Tomato Water Sauce and sweet strawberries for Strawberry-Shortbread Panachee. When summer is over, turn frozen peas into a Puree of Peas with Mint and Cilantro and warm up with Rigatoni with Mussels and Saffron.

Go Fish (Episode #125)

KQED Life: Wed, Jun 8, 2011 -- 5:30 PM

Once again, Jacques demonstrates techniques to help you spend less time in the kitchen. Asparagus Custards and an Apple Skillet Cake can be done ahead, and re-heated. A quick Cold Black Bean Soup can be made in minutes and Slow-cooked Tuna Steaks with Tomato Relish free up the cook while the oven does most of the work.

Kitchen Classics (Episode #124)

KQED Life: Mon, Jun 6, 2011 -- 5:30 PM

Jacques loves to cook with the seasons, but many ingredients are actually available year-round. A Smoked Salmon Plate using Scottish or Irish salmon, Soupy Rice with Peas using fresh or frozen peas, Fast Lobster Fricassee using summer or winter lobster, Broccoli Puree with Brown Butter, Broccoli Stem Relish, and Vanilla Hazelnut Dessert are all favorites.

Lusciously Light (Episode #123)

KQED Life: Fri, Jun 3, 2011 -- 5:30 PM

One of Jacques' all time favorite desserts easily becomes two and is a snap to make. Two Raspberry Gratins need little more than frozen raspberries and cookies. It's the perfect ending to the festive Red Snapper with Tomatoes and Cream and Asparagus with Shallots. Garden greens are topped with Sardine Rolls wrapped in rice paper and a Summertime Pasta shows off the freshest produce of the season.

International Accents (Episode #122)

KQED Life: Wed, Jun 1, 2011 -- 5:30 PM

Classic combinations shine in Jacques' dishes. Cannellini and Chorizo Soup combines flavorful chorizo and beans. A fennel salad works well alone or as the base of Salmon Rolls on Fennel Salad. Spicy spinach with raisins, pimiento, garlic, and olive oil is well-paired with Broiled Lamp Chops with Spinach and super quick Baked Potatoes with Chive Sour Cream. Just make sure to leave room for Crepes with Banana-Rum Filling.
