Happy 79th Birthday Jacques Pépin!

Today is the legendary chef Jacques Pépin's 79th birthday. He just finished taping his final series Jacques Pépin: Heart & Soul in October and here are some behind-the-scenes photos from the taping to add to the celebration.

But first a bit of visual history...

Here is a sneak peak of the production process on set and in the back kitchen of Jacques Pépin: Heart & Soul at KQED studios. Jacques' final series will be airing in autumn of 2015 to coincide with his upcoming 80th birthday.
