    I tried this and he really makes it look easy!  After several hundred chickens I might get the hang of it!!

    I made the Ballottine of Chicken with Spinach Filling and it turned out great I did step by step and Mr. Pepin it was as if you where in my kitchen guiding me. I love your show and I hope to make many more dinners with your help.

    I love watching Jacques do something as simple as cut up a chicken and make it look like art!

    I have deboned my 5th chicken to date, and am thankful for having kept the episode recorded. It is much harder than he makes it look. Although it gets easier with practice. I will be replicating this again for family in 2 weeks. It is a real WOW factor with all my guests so far.

    did not like turkey cutlet with anchovy caper lemon — followed directions exactly and it tasted awful.

    Don’t fear the bird, after the first couple it gets pretty easy. I’m making 10 of these for a group of 60 at our church next week.

      Great job Rusty! I make these quite often myself and like you’ve state, get better and more efficient with each one. Many thanks to Mr. Pepin for sharing his immense knowledge. Again, great looking bird!
