It’s a big year for legendary chef Jacques Pepin, with the launch of a new TV show and cookbook, but he’s also about to celebrate his 80th birthday! On Tuesday, Rachael Ray is throwing a surprise party for Jacques, with the entire hour devoted to celebrating him through his favorite foods, favorite chefs, and more.
Rachael, Jacques and Ming serve up dishes inspired by Jacques’ favorites – including eggs with caviar, drunken spaghetti, and French onion soup.
Another one of Jacques’ favorite things? Puppies! His final surprise was a visit from some adorable puppies from North Shore Animal League America.
