We are thrilled to announce the guest for our Fall Celebrity Author Luncheon is Jacques Pépin! Jacques Pépin is a legendary chef and author of over thirty cookbooks, including A Grandfather’s Lessons, Jacques Pépin Heart & Soul in the Kitchen, Essential Pépin, and the New York Times bestselling Jacques Pépin Quick & Simple and Jacques Pépin Art of the Chicken. He's won sixteen James Beard awards and was awarded France’s highest distinction, the Legion of Honor. Jacques has starred in twelve acclaimed PBS cooking series, winning a Daytime Emmy Lifetime Achievement Award. His dedication to culinary education led to the creation of the Jacques Pépin Foundation in 2016.
In Jacques Pépin's new book, Cooking My Way, the legendary cooking teacher offers expert insights on cooking economically at home, with techniques that save money, time, and cleanup effort, without sacrificing taste. Shop for ingredients seasonally when they’re the most affordable, flavorful, and full of nutrition. Don’t overlook inexpensive cuts of meat and poultry. Use as much of your ingredients up as possible, like by saving your meat and vegetable trimmings for a stock, soup, or eventually, a sauce. Transform leftovers into an entirely new, pleasurable meal.
Cooking My Way, will be released September 26, 2023, and will be available for sale and autograph at the Luncheon by our partners The Book Loft.
