Cooking for the President

Jacques' illustrious cooking career includes time in the Elysee Palace cooking for the French President. At the young age of 22 and alongside his best friend, pastry chef Jean-Claude Szurdak, Jacques cooked classic dishes for the de Gaulle family. Now he replicates them for us beginning with a first course of morel and shrimp eggs en cocotte. The two chefs continue their Presidential menu with a meaty main course of veal chops dijonnaise served on a bed of simple and delicious peas with basil. Together they prepare a decadent chocolate souffle for a perfectly sweet and splendid ending.
