Episode 101: Savory Staples

Jacques Pepin cooking in Episode 101 of Essential Pepin [1]Too often we plan a meal around the protein and forget that delicious sides can stand aloneā€¦ Jacques demonstrates a step-by-step recipe of Risotto with Vegetables that can make a perfect vegetarian meal. Other dishes include traditional Darphin Potatoes [2], sometimes known as Rosti potatoes, and an all-American Skillet Sweet Potatoes [3] recipe. Then, in the blink of an eye, Jacques stirs together a very flavorful Middle Eastern Green Couscous [4]. He follows this with a Corn Polenta with Mushroom Ragout, a meal that even meat lovers will love.
