Jacques on FareStart: “We’re addressing people who have been a bit maligned by life. Cooking is [a way] to give a lot of pleasure to people. So you give some of yourself as well … It can redeem you in many ways.”
Jacques Pepin was in Seattle, celebrating his new partnership with the FareStart organization. There were many luminaries on-hand for the deluxe fundraising event.
Jacques’ “The Harried Chicken” painting is a new farm to framelimited-edition signed print. This newest kitchen art makes a unique chef gift for birthday, anniversary, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, housewarming or graduation. “The Harried Chicken” is available here as a high-quality, fine-art giclée print with a limited edition print run of just 200. Once a print run sells out, that print is “retired” and no longer available for sale.
In a Hartford Courant interview with Frank Rizzo in Jacques Pepin’s Madison Connecticut kitchen, the chef talks about being an “American Chef.”
