This tribute video was created to honor Jacques Pépin and was shown at the 4th Annual New York City Wine & Food Festival Tribute Dinner on October 1, 2011.

Jacques Pépin’s new national TV series Essential Pépin begins airing October 15 on KQED. The series is based on his new cookbook Essential Pépin which is a collection of over 700 of Jacques’ favorite recipes from his career that has spanned six decades.

The new Essential Pépin website just launched and you can view four complete episodes before the program premieres as well as view entire episodes one week before they air on TV. Over 75 recipes are available online, which include large color photos not available in the book. You can also connect with Jacques on Facebook and Twitter as well as view a behind-the-scenes slideshow from the taping of the series.
