      Ditto! Jacques’ adoration of his granddaughter is just too precious! Shorey is a precocious, wonderful chef, just like her grandfather.

    Monsieur Pepin,

    J’ai presque tous vos livres. J’ai recu le premier (La Technique) quand j’avais 17 ans. Maintenant, a 51 ans, je continue de trouver beaucoup de plaisir avec vos recettes. ET vos dessins!

    Merci pour tous que vous et Julia Child ont fait pour la cuisine aux etats unis,

    Nathalie Cunningham

    I made the Meme Tart for Thanksgiving with lard I made myself last year. It was the most delicious thing on the table (of many good things!). Fabulous, easy crust.
    Thank you Jacques, every time I watch you cook I learn something new. You have been a great inspiration to me, and have been important in the big jump of cooking without a recipe. I am very grateful.

    This episode is great because it reminds us that Jacques always says that cooking is an act of love from one person to another. Claudine is an old and familiar foil for her dad, but watching Shorry with her grandfather is just too precious and cute to watch. Well done Monsieur Pepin!

    I have made Meme’s apple tart several times and my family loved it. It is quick and not to sweet which is what I like about it. I will surely make it again and again. Thanks Jacques.

    Jacques – I’ve watched you for years and have always loved you and your recipes. But seeing you with Shorey made me love you even more, if that’s possible.  Meme’s Apple Tart is delicious!
