Dinner Party Special (#219H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

Stuffed Pork Tenderloin on Grape Tomatoes is impressive but Jacques shows that making this spinach and cheese stuffed roast doesn't have to be complicated. Setting the stage for a dinner to remember is a simple version of an elegant classic, Cream of Leek and Mushroom Soup. Mini Almond Cakes doused in ruby red Raspberry Sauce crown this special party menu.

Breaking with Tradition (#220H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

Jacques breaks with tradition to make a Skillet Apple Charlotte cooked in a single pan. From a jar of mayonnaise he makes a dressing that's his alone, to serve with eggs, anchovies and tomatoes in a Harlequin Salad. And when veal isn't an option for the classic scaloppini, Jacques chooses turkey breast for a twist in Turkey Scallopini with Morels served with Middle Eastern Couscous with Saffron.

Spice Up Your Life (#212H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

When Claudine comes to visit, Jacques wants to spend the day with his daughter and granddaughter so he turns to his pressure cooker to prepare a Lamb Curry in half the time and serves it over Rice with Raisins. To begin the meal, Jacques manages to stretch four ounces of sea scallops into a dish serving four people in the form of Scallop Pancakes on Boston Salad -- the smell of the pancakes as they cook make it impossible for them to resist sharing the first ones straight out of the pan. For the finale, Jacques transforms a tortilla and a can of apricots into a beautiful and delicious Crisp Apricot.

Bread Flip (#221H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

When Jacques finds a new bread at a local restaurant he cannot resist developing his own version. The result is the first dish on the show, Tibetan Flatbread. Cooked in a frying pan, Claudine holds her breath as Jacques flips the bread after seven minutes. Next, Jacques reveals that he doesn't throw out broccoli stems - in fact, the stems are his favorite part of the vegetable and a key ingredient in his Risotto with Broccoli Stems. Salmon Burgers on Baby Arugula follow before Jacques shows the versatility of citrus by candying the rind and cutting Grapefruit Supremes.

Viva Espana! (#201H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

Jacques' world travels influence his cooking and with this menu we'll savor the essence of Spain. Bold and Spicy Gazpacho kicks off the meal followed by Shellfish and Chicken Paella. A detour to pick up some Caribbean flavors makes the last dish of Pineapple in Dark Rum Sauce worth a trip to the kitchen.

Earth to Table (#213H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

For Jacques, nothing beats an earthy soup to keep you warm during the coldest season and his Hearty Vegetable Bean Soup hits the spot. To spice up the evening, he creates a pocket in boneless chicken breasts to fill with a tasty stuffing in Chicken Supremes with Tapenade and Mushroom Sauce served over Vegetable Couscous. The meal ends on a sweet note with a Pear Compote and freshly baked Almond Crumble Cookies.

Seafood Tricks (#222H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

Little tricks make life in the kitchen so much easier, and Jacques is always ready with tips to simplify or speed up a task. Here he pops clams into the freezer for a few minutes to make opening them a breeze for his Baked Clams Madison. Jacques suggests cod as the perfect choice for those who hesitate to cook fish. It stays moist through cooking and, when topped with an olive crust in Cod In Olive-Tomato Crust, it packs a lot of flavor. Skillet Broccoli Bits make a great pairing with the fish. Finally, warm hazelnut-chocolate spread is mixed with ice cream to form the sauce in Mango with Nutella Sauce.

Dessert First! (#223H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

When in doubt, start with dessert....and it's easy when you use a tortilla for the crust as Jacques does in Crisp Pear Tart. Fresh bay scallops are shown in the shell at their very best, and become too tempting to Jacques who can't resist nibbling on them, in a light, fresh tasting Bay Scallops in Mignonette Sauce. For a homier dish, Jacques shares his comforting Sausage Patties with Pumpkin Seeds and Mushrooms served with Cornmeal Mush.
