Fete Des Boules

Jacques and his best friend Jean-Claude work up an appetite in the summer sun playing the traditional French game of boules. Jacques cooks up a party menu of favorites to share. He begins with crab chips with salmon caviar, bursting with decadent flavors and textures. Then the freshest of eggs are whisked to become an egg and herb treats appetizer. The party continues with a crowd-pleasing camembert with pistachio crust, a garden-fresh tabbouleh salad and a tomato, mozzarella and onion salad before Jacques finishes his festive menu with a grand smoked ham glazed with maple syrup, cooked and carved to perfection!

Catch O' The Day

Jacques' summer itinerary always includes friends, fishing, and cooking the wonderful bounty from the sea. He begins with a grilled striped bass with olive topping and then, as he loves all mollusks, he takes the time to demonstrate shucking clams two ways. The result is top neck clams with vinegar and scallion sauce, a tasty appetizer and Gloria's linguine with clam sauce, direct from his wife's preferred list. For the final seafood selection, he masterfully fillets and poaches fish for a delectable cod in light cream sauce.

Julia Remembered

Jacques takes a stroll down memory lane as he lovingly prepares dishes once enjoyed with his dear cooking companion Julia Child. Jacques' retrospective menu begins with a shucking lesson, the first steps towards an oyster chowder with potatoes, spinach and corn. Jacques then recreates Julia's classic South of France eggplant-tomato gratin, a dish with layers of rustic flavors. He recalls going head-to-head with Julia for a winning hamburger royale using fresh ground beef and all the fixin's.
