Episode 110: Easy and Elegant Seafood

Jacques Pepin cooking in Episode 110 of Essential PepinJacques begins the step-by-step recipe with the supreme crustacean, Lobster in Artichoke Hearts. This sets the tone for a show filled with wonderful gifts from the sea. He explains that shrimp is now one of the most consumed seafood’s in the country and Shrimp Pané on Watercress is a recipe to make them shine. Jacques used to make Escoffier Quenelles when working with Pierre Franey at the Le Pavillon in New York and now makes them for us using a food processor to make light work of the task. Finally, he waxes poetic on the virtues of one of the ugliest fishes in the sea and makes Monkfish Roulade stuffed full of broccoli rabe.

    In episode 110, the Lobster with Artichokes looks elegant. The presentation plates added greatly to the overall look. Can you please share the plate design and manufacturer? Thank you.
