Jacques Pepin: More Fast Food My Way

Latest Episodes

Jacques reminisces about his childhood and celebrates the bounty of the season. He cooks up a batch of ratatouille that can be served two ways -- perfectly delicious on its own or with pasta in Ratatouille with Penne. Seafood stars in Shrimp with Cabbage and red Caviar, and delicate peaches end the show in Jacques' classically made Peach Melba.

Jacques shows Claudine how presentation can make a simple, traditional dish truly elegant by layering feta, cucumber and onion between tomato slices to make Tall Greek Tomato Salad. Poached Salmon in Sour Cream Herb Sauce follows as Jacques reveals his father's dislike of olive oil to his daughter, Claudine. Together they make a variation of his Mother's recipe Stew of Peas and Carrots -- a meal in itself! Dessert is pure simplicity in Sweet Riccota Gateaux with Peach Sauce.

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.

Light, lean and big on flavor! This menu features Small Crocks of Shrimp in Hot Vegetable Broth and lean pork tenderloin in Pork Medallions with Grapes and Pomegranate Sauce accompanied by a melange of Spinach, Macadamia Nuts and Raisins. For dessert, it's Butter Pecan Ice Cream paired with Apple Maple Topping making a feast worthy of any company!

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.

Living close to the shore in Connecticut offers Jacques the opportunity to celebrate the bounties of the sea. He loves seafood and begins this menu with a Picante Mussel Pilaf. Next, Jacques surprises viewers with a novel take on a breadcrumb coating for Onion-Crusted Sole with Anchovy Butter. He ends with a popular French dessert that's not quite an omelet...not quite a custard...it's an Apricot Clafoutis.
