If you’ve ever read a cookbook, there’s a good chance Jacques Pépin wrote it. Pépin is the author of 26 books and has starred on 11 television series. He has won multiple James Beard Awards and is one of the most recognizable chefs in America. Pépin’s most recent book, Jacques Pépin: More Fast Food My Way, was released in 2008.
Claudine Pépin is the daughter of Jacques and has appeared on three James Beard Award-winning shows with her father, including “Jacques Pépin’s Kitchen: Cooking with Claudine” and “Jacques Pépin’s Kitchen: Encore with Claudine.” Claudine has a solid culinary background, but she has also branched out into the world of wine. For two years, she was the brand ambassador for Moöt & Chandon and Dom Pérignon Champagne. In 2002, Claudine was named “Woman of the Year” by the Académie Culinaire de France—Filiale des Etats Unis.
