Jacques Pépin Pledges Food and Demo to the Autumn Gourmet Classic


The inimitable Jacques Pépin may currently be on a cruise with the Amateur Gourmet’s parents, but the French face of public television will be in town September 9 to host a cooking demo at the WLIW21 Autumn Gourmet Classic. Pépin, Paladar's Aaron Sanchez, and Lou DiPalo from DiPalo Dairy will contribute to the tasting tables at the event, which will be held in the Astor Center from 6 to 9 p.m. A single ticket is $250, but like most pledges, it comes with swag: a ready-to-sign copy of Lidia's Italian-American Kitchen.
