We celebrated the 80th birthday of Jacques Pépin on Tuesday, November 17th at the test kitchens of Good Housekeeping magazine. Our hosts, Dames Sharon Franke, Susan Westmoreland and new Dame Carrie Bachman arranged for Jacques’ program and provided lovely hors d’oeuvres (some of which they made!) and wines donated by Kendall-Jackson. Jacques told us about his fascinating life and all the varied positions he has held in the food world in his 60-year career. His newest cookbook “Heart and Soul in the Kitchen” was available to members with his autograph. It is a charming look at Jacques’ personal life, what he cooks for his family and his own favorite foods.

It was a pleasure to partner with Heritage Radio Network in this recording of The Next Big Bite panel discussion, which took place at the Institute of Culinary Education on October 26th. Dame Rozanne Gold deftly moderated an impressive panel: Dame Amanda Cohen, Amanda Hesser, Dame Marion Nestle and Mimi Sheraton. Spanning five decades of food industry experience, it was a table laden with rich experiences, often-humorous perspectives and much thoughtful commentary as to where food will lead us in 2016 and beyond.

Come back often. This conversation is just getting started! #TheNextBigBite
