Jacques Pépin's Kitchen: Encore with Claudine

Show Summary

Jacques Pepin's Kitchen: Encore with Claudine is a famous cooking series produced by KQED-TV for PBS. The shows which were produced in San Francisco in 1998, feature the world-famous cook Jacques Pepin with his American daughter Claudine. In every episode, Jacques teaches Claudine recipes which are inspired by both French and American gourmet cooking. Basics are taught such as cleaning salad greens up to boning and stuffing quail. Most recipes have an American feel despite the apparent French influence and need minimal ingredients and direction. As the first show with his daughter started in 1995, this series is only one of the many shows the father-daughter tandem hosted. Pepin is very noted for being the personal chef of three French head of states before coming to the United States in 1959. He particularly channels this expertise well by teaching the general public through these shows. This series ran for about six months before finally ending in April 1, 1999.
