Viva Mexico! (Episode #118H)

KQED Plus: Fri, Nov 17, 2017 -- 2:00 PM

Jacques spends some of the winter months at his home-away-from-home, Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. Time basking in the sunshine and savoring the local flavors along with an occasional visit from friend Rick Bayless has inspired him to take us on a culinary adventure, beginning with a refreshing hibiscus flower cocktail. He continues with a duo of superlative seafood dishes of Yucatan ceviche and fillet of sole Riviera with pico de gallo. From sea to pasture, beef fillet mini steaks with mushrooms and shallots makes for a substantial main course. Finally, he ends with a frozen fruit dessert of grapefruit granite with mango and mojito cocktail.

The two continue, creating stuffed tomatoes - a Pepin heirloom recipe passed down through several genera-tions. Jacques then shares an afterschool favorite from his childhood, appropriately named pain de quatre heures or "the four o'clock bread," filled with hazelnuts and chocolate. A crunchy bite of chocolate-pistachio brittle brings the lesson to a close and a smile to their faces.

Fresh fruit recipes follow with peaches marty and rhubarb-honey coupe with creamy yogurt sauce. Shorey's love of chocolate isn't forgotten with chocolate pistachio biscotti, which proves to be a perfect lesson in baking, as Jacques guides her measurements and mixtures.

Ocean Harvest (Episode #120H)

KQED Life: Mon, Nov 6, 2017 -- 5:30 PM

Seaside living has, without a doubt, influenced Jacques' repertoire of recipes to include the freshest fish caught close to his own backyard. On today's show, Jacques showcases four sophisticated seafood servings, starting with an expertly executed tuna a la minute. He then skips the beef and substitutes shrimp for a healthy approach to a classic, with shrimp burgers on zucchini. He goes on to garnish his flaky grilled bacalao with an assortment of zesty Mediterranean olives for a light and easy dish that cooks in minutes. Then pasta and shrimp with pressed caviar shavings cooked al dente, or "to the tooth," make for a decadent dish, delivered with aplomb!

KQED 9: Sat, Nov 4, 2017 -- 10:30 AM
