He's written some pretty good and amusing books. The title escapes me but one of the books he wrote details some interesting experiences he had while still not so sure of his English.

Jacques is the best. He taught me how to cook in the 90s, via PBS cooking shows.
I used to love his show with his daughter Claudette. She would say, “Papa, I am having a bunch of my college friends over, will you make something for them?” Then he’d go to the refrigerator, get the most simple ingredients, and make a feast.

PBS regularly does fill their saturday and sunday daytime programming with an array of cooking shows, including Jacques, one of my favorites.

I just enjoyed watching on PBS Martha make a passion fruit meringue pie.

Kenji Lopez-Alt can easily be the next Jacques Pepin, although I already miss him. I like Jacques so much more than FoodNetork "celebrities." It was great back then when shows really taught how to cook, rather than focusing on camera angles and gossip on their cooking shows. Now, it's mostly mindless entertainment. Either that, or that annoying chick who's on 24/7. The Pioneer Woman? Something like that? She sucks man.

He’s wonderful! Used to watch him with my grandmother all the time. She would yell at me to get her pen and paper so she could write down the recipes

Jacques Pepin is a talented chef, and I’ve bought several of his cookbooks. A favorite is The Short-Cut Cook, good tasty recipes made fast. I always enjoy catching him on TV.

He had a short series on techniques and my husband lost all fear of cutting up chickens and carving meat.

I agree!!!
I've been a Kenji fan since he was with the America's Test Kitchen enterprise years ago.. He left them and it was their loss, but he bloomed. He shares a lot of the same qualities that drew me to the old-school TV chefs, Julia, Pepin, Frugal Gourmet, Hubert Keller, Paul Prudhomme, Ming and one of my favorites Nick Stellino. They were all teachers. Their show's focus was always on the food and the preparation of the food, not the glamor or drama of a lot of shows afterwords. I learned a lot from those TV chefs, and even though my lifestyle has changed a lot since those days, I still regularly use several techniques/chops that each of them shared.
