Jacques Pépin with Andrew Zimmern

0 Comments

The grand master of cooking has a new apprentice in the kitchen — his 12-year-old granddaughter, who joins him and Bizarre Food’s Andrew Zimmern for a wide-ranging discussion about his latest book, A Grandfather’s Lessons: In the Kitchen with Shorey.

Ever since she was very young, his granddaughter, Shorey, has loved “helping” him in the kitchen. Now that she is twelve, Jacques gives his charismatic pupil a short course on preparing “food that is plain, but elegant, and more than anything, fun.” In the process, he proves himself as inspiring to her as he is to the country’s greatest chefs.

This event is part of our Kitchen Arts & Letters series. In partnership with the esteemed culinary bookstore, we present talks, demos and tastings with leading cookbook authors, chefs, food historians and farmers.
