Jacques spends some of the winter months at his home-away-from-home, Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. Time basking in the sunshine and savoring the local flavors along with an occasional visit from friend Rick Bayless has inspired him to take us on a culinary adventure, beginning with a refreshing hibiscus flower cocktail. He continues with a duo of superlative seafood dishes of Yucatan ceviche and fillet of sole Riviera with pico de gallo. From sea to pasture, beef fillet mini steaks with mushrooms and shallots makes for a substantial main course. Finally, he ends with a frozen fruit dessert of grapefruit granite with mango and mojito cocktail.

It will also touch upon a key period in Pepin's life when he crossed the Atlantic and entered the kitchens of New York at Le Pavillon and his 10 years as director of research at Howard Johnson's.
