“In Proust’s affective memory in Remembrance of Things Past, look, touch, taste, smell, and hearing are of the utmost importance, and so it is for a chef.” So writes Jacques Pépin in his visually driven autobiography Chez Jacques: Traditions and Rituals of a Cook. Jacques is not only one of the world’s most beloved and celebrated master chefs, culinary instructors, cookbook authors, and media personalities, but a dedicated and accomplished visual artist. This unforgettable evening will combine the inimitable culinary guru’s greatest talents: food and art. Each attendee will receive a copy of Chez Jacques, and prints of some of his paintings will be available to purchase. Guests will feast their eyes on some of the great chef’s enchanting watercolors, and sample some of his exquisite recipes which are sure to satisfy heart, mind, and soul. Due to popular demand, this second evening has been added. Includes book.
