Quick and Simple Cooking Tips from Jacques Pépin

Read more

[REBROADCAST FROM OCTOBER 8, 2020] Chef Jacques Pépin joins us to discuss his latest cookbook, Jacques Pépin Quick & Simple, a perfect beginner cookbook for a new generation of home cooks looking for advice from one of most trusted chefs in the world. He'll also take listener calls. Originally published as The Short-Cut CookQuick & Simple now includes new and updated recipes and photography and original illustrations from the chef himself.

Mom’s Cheese and Spinach Soufflé

Serves 4

I have a very personal attachment to this soufflé. The recipe comes from my mother, who told me that when she was a young bride, she wanted to make a soufflé for my father, who loved them, but she didn’t know how. A friend told her that a cheese soufflé was composed of a béchamel (white sauce), which she knew how to make, grated cheese, and eggs. So she proceeded to make one with these ingredients, not knowing that in a classic soufflé the eggs are separated—the yolks mixed into the white sauce first and the beaten whites folded in later. So she beat the whole eggs into the béchamel and was so happy with the result that she made her soufflés in this manner ever afterward!

This kind of soufflé has many advantages, the most important being that you can prepare the base mixture up to a day ahead, so there is no hectic last-minute preparation involved. Although it takes a little longer to cook than a standard soufflé and has a slightly less airy texture, it rises beautifully, browns well, and is delicious. The soufflé is made in a gratin dish rather than a soufflé mold so that it cooks faster, is crustier, and is easier to divide into portions.

3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon unsalted butter

3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1¼ cups cold milk

¼ teaspoon salt

¹∕8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

¹∕8 teaspoon ground nutmeg

3 cups baby spinach leaves

1½ cups grated Gruyère or Beaufort cheese (about 4 ounces)

4 large eggs, lightly beaten

3 tablespoons coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley or basil

Melt 3 tablespoons of the butter in a medium saucepan over high heat. Add the flour and stir with a whisk until well combined and sizzling, then whisk in the cold milk and bring to a boil, stirring and mixing with the whisk so the mixture doesn’t stick as it thickens. Boil for about 20 seconds, mixing continuously with the whisk. Add the salt, pepper, and nutmeg and remove the pan from the heat.

Use the 1 remaining teaspoon butter to grease the bottom of a 3- to 4-cup oval gratin dish. Place the spinach in a bowl and microwave for 2 minutes, or until wilted.

By now, the white sauce should have cooled a little. Add the spinach and cheese to it and mix with the whisk. Add the eggs and parsley and mix well. Pour the mixture into the prepared gratin dish. This step can be done a couple of hours ahead and the dish kept in the refrigerator until cooking time.

When you are ready to cook the soufflé, preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Place the gratin dish on a cookie sheet lined with nonstick aluminum foil for easy cleanup and bake for approximately 40 minutes, until well puffed and brown. Serve immediately.

This is the ideal soufflé to assemble ahead and cook at the last moment.

Episode 106: Jean-Louis Palladin and the Young Americans, with special guest Jacques Pépin

Read more

Jean-Louis Palladin, who came to the United States from France in 1979, was one of the most talented and influential chefs of his generation. From his base in Washington, DC, Palladin, who died much too young in 2001 at age 55, helped forge a network of farmers and purveyors along the Eastern Seaboard, brought an unparalleled artistry and innate gift for improvisation to his cooking, wrote one of the first "coffee table" chef cookbooks, and left his mark on a generation of young Americans, inspiring such then-aspiring chefs as Anthony Bourdain and Thomas Keller.

During a recent tribute dinner at the Watergate Hotel, Andrew sat down with a number of chefs who knew Palladin well: His contemporary and fellow immigrant French chef Jacques Pépin, three chefs who supported him at Jean-Louis at the Watergate--Larbi Dahrouch, Jimmy Sneed, and Jamie Stachowski--and chef of the Watergate's current showcase restaurant Kingbird, Sébastien Giannini.

All of that, plus a bonus conversation with Jacques Pépin about how his hobby of  painting parallels his life in the kitchen.
