Episode 112: Fruit Fete

Jacques Pepin cooking in episode 112 of Essential PepinBecause apples are available all year, we often forget how delicious they are freshly baked, all warm and puffy, straight from the oven. Jacques’ Good Lady Apples Bon Femme recipe satisfies all apple cravings with maple sweetened fruit. In this show, Jacques goes on to add basil leaves to a Stew of Red Summer Fruit to make a deliciously flavorful, fragrant dessert. He also prepares two more simple and tasty dishes: Braised Pears in a Caramel Sauce and Flambéed Bananas. Apples return as the main ingredient for the final dish of Apple Fritters.

    The apple fritter recipe in Jacques’ Essential Pepin cookbook is completely different than the one he does on this episode. This episode shows him simply mixing some A/P flour and a half a bottle of beer.
