Happy Birthday Jacques Pepin
This month marks the 80th birthday for this culinary icon, who also has announced his retirement from television at the end of this last season on shows, "Heart and Soul", on PBS. I had the honor of chatting with Chef Pepin back in 2003 and I share it with many thanks for his service and instruction.
