Martin will preview his new series Martin Yan’s Taste of Vietnam and reminisce with his old friend Jacques, who is in the Bay Area taping a new public television program Jacques Pépin: Heart & Soul.

About Martin Yan’s Taste of Vietnam
Martin Yan is back! In his new show, Martin showcases the country’s breathtaking landscapes, its bustling cities, and, of course, its delicious cuisine. Martin Yan’s Taste of Vietnam features both cooking demonstrations and a personal tour of Vietnam, given by Martin himself. The series is presented for national broadcast by KQED and premieres on Saturday, September 13, at 10am on KQED 9. It will premiere nationally throughout the fall of 2014.

About Jacques Pépin: Heart & Soul
Jacques Pépin: Heart & Soul, Pepin’s 14th and final cooking series on public television, will be his most personal series yet. Heart & Soul travels back in time to his earlier days in front of the camera, includes never-before-seen home videos and features the legendary chef at home sharing both simple dishes for the novice, and other, more involved creations for the seasoned cook. The series is produced by KQED, and will premiere on public television stations around the country in 2015.
