Simple Sweet Notes (#204H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

Jacques cuts the cooking time of a whole chicken in half with a pair of shears and a few cuts of his knife in this flavorful Roasted Split Chicken with a Mustard Crust. Fluffy Mashed Potatoes make the perfect side dish. Pizza is made quicker and easier when you use a ready made base, and Jacques personalizes it with an unusual twist when he crisps lavash to make Smoked Salmon Pizza garnished with capers, onion and cilantro. He concludes with a no-frills Greek Yogurt, Walnuts and Honey, arguably one of his fastest desserts.

The Egg First! (#208H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

Jacques loves eggs, all ways! Cooking them is an important technique and who better to demonstrate the perfect hard cooked egg than a master of technique! Jacques begins this menu with hard cooked eggs used as a garnish in Asparagus Fans with Mustard Sauce. Simply seared in moments, Scallops Grenobloise is the ultimate fast dish - and when served with Potato Gratin with Cream, it makes a rich main course. Jam Tartines with Fruit Sherbet concludes the menu.

Fast Proof (#209H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

No one expects a bread recipe in a fast food collection but Jacques shows viewers how to mix and bake a loaf of bread in one pot in his Slow and Easy Bread in a Pot. Next he shares his favorite eggs prepared in little containers known as Cocotte Eggs with Creamed Mushrooms. When Jacques raids the pantry and freezer, he finds the fixings to make a Ragout of Broccolini, Beans and Sausage. Fresh berries and a neat twist on a bought pastry crust end the meal with Cookie Dough Raspberry Tart.

Brussel Sprout Love (#210H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

If left on a desert island, Jacques thinks he'd be quite happy if only there were some chickens! For Jacques, the prize part of the chicken is the thigh and he thinks you'll agree when you try Crusty Chicken Thighs with Mushroom Sauce served with a tasty Fricassee of Brussel Sprouts and Bacon. An inspired use of instant potato flakes to thicken a soup shows up in the fast cooking Seafood Chowder topped with fresh crabmeat. To end on a relaxing note, Jacques arranges a presentation of Stilton with Apple and Nuts to accompany a delicious glass of vintage or aged Tawny Port.

He ends his cooking adventure with Cream Cheese and Fruit Medley.

Go Fish (#211H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

Living close to the shore in Connecticut offers Jacques the opportunity to celebrate the bounties of the sea. He loves seafood and begins this menu with a Picante Mussel Pilaf. Next, Jacques surprises viewers with a novel take on a breadcrumb coating for Onion-Crusted Sole with Anchovy Butter. He ends with a popular French dessert that's not quite an omelet... not quite a custard... it's an Apricot Clafoutis.
