Episode 124: Sweet Endings

Jean-Claude and Jacques Pepin in Sweet EndingsWhile Jacques’ long time friend Jean-Claude isn’t looking, Jacques crafts Chocolate Mint Trufflettes that meet excited approval from Jean-Claude. Together the pair make Quick Almond and Plum Cake using whole plums, expertly removing the pits without damaging the fruit. Crispy Tuiles a L’Orange follows, simple to make as long as you keep one eye on the oven while they bake! The same goes for the Summer Cornets Susie filled with whipped cream and fresh berries. They’re all desserts that impress guests, but don’t stress out the chefs.

    Tres Bien! Great Episode!
    I’ve been watching your show for years. If I would learn to cook from anyone, you are at the top of the list. The way you talk during the show instills calm and confidence in the viewer. I have to say, I can thank you and Julia Childs  for allot of my home cooking success!
    I still make the best gravy in the the family, thanks to you. :)
    Merci! Jacque!
