PBS is celebrating the holidays by sharing some of the favorite traditions, memories and recipes that make all of our holidays so very important and special. Each day we will highlight a new story from some of your favorite personalities.
World renowned chef Jacques Pepin shares his joy in cooking family recipes with his daughter Claudine and granddaughter Shorey.
I always enjoy the Christmas holidays.
When Claudine was little we would make chocolate truffles and little Chocolate Rochers with Hazelnuts and Cornflakes together. Now it’s wonderful to be making the same recipes with my granddaughter Shorey, who loves chocolate. Shorey helped me with the Chocolate and Nut Pies on my new series, Essential Pepin… she loves to taste the mixture, especially when it has her favorite ingredient… and she is just as messy as her Mom!
