Join us as we welcome legendary chef Jacques Pépin. In Essential Pépin, a book that celebrates his 60 years in food, the world's most famous cooking teacher shares his most favorite recipes from the the thousands he has created throughout his career. They include Onion Soup Lyonnaise-Style (which Jacques enjoyed as a young chef while bar-crawling in Paris); Linguine with Clam Sauce and Vegetables (a frequent dinner chez Jacques); Grilled Chicken with Tarragon Butter (which he makes indoors in winter and outdoors in summer); Five-Peppercorn Steak (his spin on a bistro classic); Meme's Apple Tart (which his mother made every day in her Lyon restaurant); and Warm Chocolate Fondue Souffle (part cake, part pudding, part souffle, and pure bliss). Essential Pépin spans the many styles of Jacques's cooking: homey country French, haute cuisine, fast food Jacques-style, and fresh contemporary American dishes. The books also includes a searchable DVD demonstrating every cooking technique you'll ever need. Join us for a fabulous evening you won't forget as we raise a toast with this true culinary legend! The price includes the meal, coffee, tax, tip & a signed copy of the author’s book. Dinner will include wines from Trione Winery.
