This series is the culmination of chef Jacques Pepin's 60+ years of experience in the kitchen. 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.
