jacques pepin: heart & soul

Sat, May 25 2:00 P.M. NHPBS (11.1)  

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.

About Jacques Pepin: Heart & Soul:

JACQUES PEPIN: HEART & SOUL is not just another series showcasing Jacques, his delicious recipes or his amazing technique.

This is his last full series which will be his most personal yet featuring never-before-seen footage of his life.

HEART & SOUL will highlight Pepin's 60 years in the kitchen which includes his apprenticeship as a 13-year-old cooking in some of Paris' most revered establishments such as Meurice and Plaza Athenee and cooking for French President Charles DeGaulle.

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.

The 26-episode series is a reflection of Jacques' history and will reveal a more personal side of the internationally renowned chef as we've never seen before.

Fans and cooking aficionados alike will be given an intimate access to his life from playing boules at home, visiting the market, and sailing the seas to gathering clams, tucking into lobster rolls at his favorite shack as well as sharing memories, anecdotes and insights into his philosophy of life.

Each episode will feature creative recipes that combine Pepin's culinary history and travel experiences with his expert teaching skills.

Simple dishes for the novice and more involved creations for the seasoned cook will be shown and frugal tips will be offered.

Occasionally family or guests are invited to cook alongside Jacques or join him in the dining room.

Chefs from across the nation will, too, make a contribution, either from their own kitchen, through archival footage or on-camera acknowledgement of Jacques' tutelage and influence.
