The Long Center is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit dedicated to broadening the appreciation and enhancing the enjoyment of the cultural arts.
The Long Center Presents, in partnership with the Austin Food & Wine Alliance, world-renowned Chef Jacques Pepin, June 5th in Dell Hall.
Jacques Pépin is world renowned as the host of his acclaimed and popular cooking programs on public television, and as a prolific author, respected instructor, and gifted artist. Pépin was awarded the highest honor by the French Government and holds the title of Chevalier de L’ordre National de la Legion D’Honneur.
Pépin has starred in numerous television shows. The success of his book La Technique, used to this day as a textbook for teaching the fundamentals of French cuisine, prompted him to launch a televised version resulting in an acclaimed 1997 PBS series, The Complete Pépin. Relaunched on PBS ten years after its initial run, the series included a new introduction by Pépin where he stressed that now more than ever the secret to being a successful chef and not a mere line cook lies in knowing and using the proper technique. In 1999, Pépin co-starred in the PBS series Julia and Jacques Cooking at Home with Julia Child. The program was awarded a Daytime Emmy in 2001.
Join us for a unique opportunity to hear the words and wisdom one of the world’s most renowned & beloved chef in his 80th year. A portion of the proceeds from this event will go to fund an Austin Food & Wine Alliance Scholarship to the 2017 Culinary Arts Career Conference.
