Menu Memories

Jacques and daughter Claudine reminiscence about past menus enjoyed as a family, but first, Jacques teaches Claudine how to properly sharpen a knife in preparation for filleting a side of salmon for his salmon scaloppini with sorrel sauce. Jacques and Claudine go on to blend aromatic herbs, chunky vegetables and a dash of red wine to make a hearty dish of lamb breast navarin. While the lamb is braising, the two 'go green' with a green salad with mustard dressing using Jacques' favorite leaf: Boston lettuce. Finally, they prepare a caffeine-packed coffee panna cotta, the perfect pick-me-up dessert.

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.
