Bright and early this Friday morning, the Food & Wine Classic in Aspen kicks off with an amazing line-up of seminars, demos and panels. One of the first is 101 Pépin Family Recipes, in which Jacques Pépin and his daughter Claudine Pépin will give festival-goers a taste of their family meals. If you can’t be in Aspen to learn directly from Jacques and Claudine, try making one of their amazing recipes at home. Here, nine incredible Pépin family recipes.
1. Jacques Pépin’s Favorite Pound Cake
Pépin’s mother, aunt and cousin all had their own versions of this classic cake. He likes to fold in candied citrus peels, but he also likes to dip plain slices in espresso.
2. Les Oeufs Jeannette
When Pépin was a kid, eggs were a staple on his table. His favorite recipe was his mother’s creation of stuffed eggs, which he baptized “Eggs Jeannette.”
