WORD OF MOUTH with Leiti Hsu
Mortality, Petanque, & Paris in the 1950s
This week on WORD OF MOUTH, Leiti visits celebrity chef, author and Dean, Jacques Pepin at the International Culinary Center. Beloved as Julia Child’s TV counterpart and a game-changer in American cuisine—and French food in America, we get to know this son of a cabinetmaker and a cook. We’ll talk mortality, how he met his wife, painting, petanque parties and the 1950s in Paris. Plus, we’ll preview his new book “Heart & Soul in the Kitchen”—and how this legend cooks at home for close friends and family.
