Master chef, author and educator Jacques Pépin is scheduled to make a personal appearance in Los Altos April 24. The “original Iron Chef” will be signing copies of his most recent books 3-5 p.m. at Main Street Café and Books, 134 Main St. The internationally renowned chef is also appearing locally April 23-25 at the Foothill College Celebrity Forum Speaker Series, at Flint Center, De Anza College.
Pépin has published more than 25 cookbooks, hosted 12 highly acclaimed public television shows and taught millions of Americans - plus an entire generation of chefs - how to cook. His innovative approach to the kitchen begins with technique and ends with creation, believing that every meal should be a celebration. Both "The Apprentice: My Life in the Kitchen" (Memoir) and "Essential Pepin" (Cookbook) will be on sale at the cafe.
Copies of Pépin's books can be pre-ordered at the Foothill College Bookstore and delivered at the cafe. For more information, call 949-7308 or visit books.foothill.edu. For more about the Celebrity Forum Speaker Series, visit celebrityforum.net.
