Jacques Pépin: The Art of Craft

Season 31 Episode 5 | 53m 10s

Today he is known as a kitchen supernova, but in telling his own story in this documentary profile, he acknowledges that the very notion of being a “celebrity chef” was not only unplanned—it was virtually unthinkable in the profession and world in which he grew up.
