Frites and Fries: an Amuse-Bouche for Food Fridays

This week we're kicking off Food Fridays series, and to whet your appetite, we're sharing a conversation from last spring. In May, hundreds of WNYC listeners joined Leonard Lopate in the Great Hall of Cooper Union for a conversation with three great French chefs. Jacques Pepin, Daniel Boulud and Eric Ripert talked about falling in love with cooking in France and then finding their way to fame and fortune in America’s kitchens.

Hear Daniel Boulud describe his love of baby eels (a delicacy that’s gotten very expensive). Eric Ripert shares that his nickname when he was an apprentice was “Blue Shoulders.” And don’t miss Jacques Pepin’s fantastic Julia Child impression!

Thanks to audio engineers Ed Haber, Kristin Mueller, and Rick Kwan and to the WNYC Events team.
