I don’t really watch a lot of food television, preferring to go out to eat or cook myself. If forced to choose, however, my favorite is anything featuring Jacques Pépin on PBS. There’s something so zen about his demeanor, his uber-efficient technique, and the fact that the food always seems to be the star. Having had the privilege of learning from him at The French Culinary Institute, I can tell you that he works as neatly even when there aren’t cameras trained on him, and that his appreciation of even the most simple foods, like bread and butter, is genuine. When you’re watching food-related TV, what type of program do you prefer? Weigh in on today’s poll!
