I was trolling through the cable guy trying to findI was scrolling through the cable guide trying to find something new to watch. I stumble across Jacques Pepin Fast Food My Way on one of the PBS channels. I don't know how they were able to squeeze anything in but the continual Obama lovefest on TV, but here it was, a new show. If you've never seen or heard of him, he's pretty low key. He had a show with Julia Childs, was the personal chef of Charles DeGaulle (French Prime Minister), and his most famous book is La Technique. What I love about the show is that it stresses crisp fundamentals, and showcases his incredible skill. I've never seen anyone faster with a knife than this guy. Think Mario Batali if he weren't an annoying New York showoff. I have no doubt that he would kill any of the clowns on Top Chef at every challenge.
