Already a household name and culinary icon, Jacques Pépin has dedicated over 50 years of his life to the culinary arts.
He is world renowned as the host of his acclaimed and popular cooking programs on public television, and as a prolific author, respected instructor and gifted artist. Jacques Pépin: Fast Food My Way
is the 10th television series hosted by Pépin.
When asked about how his life changed in the past few years, Pépin says: "Certainly, becoming a grandfather (to Shorey, Claudine's daughter) 2004 was a milestone. As for the publication of my memoir, The Apprentice
, the response was amazing and very gratifying. I see myself as moving forward, progressing; I don't see myself as being static. And I think that there is still time and space for me to do better things than I have ever done before."
