Evening with Jacques Pépin

Description

Jacques Pépin is one of the world’s finest culinary teachers. He has authored over 25 cookbooks and a best-selling memoir. Formerly a long-running food columnist in the New York Times, he remains a steady contributor to Food and Wine Magazine. Over the years he has hosted a televised cooking series, worked with Julia Child, and appeared with other notable chefs on their own series. Pépin is responsible for creating the Culinary Arts Program and the Gastronomy Program at Boston University, for which he received an Honorary Doctorate in Humane Letters in May 2011. In celebration of his most recent achievement, Pépin will demonstrate and prepare a full dinner—including accompanying wines—with recipes from his most recent book, the Essential Pépin. Each person attending will receive a signed copy of the book. This promises to be an enjoyable and memorable evening, and will include a demonstration, meal, wines, and a copy of the Essential Pépin.
