Play Jacques Pépin makes buttermilk pancakes

"Very often, especially during the holidays, I buy cream—and very often I have cream left over. After a week or so I put that cream in the food processor and make butter—we can always use butter. And of course, with the butter you also get buttermilk. Occasionally I will use the buttermilk to make pancakes, which is easy to do. I serve them with whatever fruit I happen to have around."

Play Jacques Pépin makes easy and delicous crêpes

"I always had crêpes as a child, and made them countless times for my daughter and granddaughter. There is nothing easier than making crêpes. I put a piece of butter to melt in a skillet, and by the time that butter is melted I have mixed enough milk, flour, and an egg to make half a dozen crêpes. You can serve them with jam inside or something savory, like ham or cheese. Easy and delicious."

Play Jacques Pépin makes an easy cream cheese soufflé

Play Jacques Pépin makes cocotte eggs

"A nice way to serve eggs is to cook them in a little container we call a “cocotte”, a little soufflé mold or ramekin.

Play Jacques Pépin makes a seafood omelet

"I like omelets in any form, but the seafood omelet that I’m doing here is a bit more rich and sophisticated than most.

Play Jacques Pépin makes a country omelet

"This is kind of a rough omelet, a bit in the style of a Spanish tortilla or an Italian frittata. I sauté potato and onion, and with that I add the eggs and cheese, I like Gruyère in this case, and some chives, and I add a layer of tomato on top and that goes under the broiler for a couple of minutes to be served slid out of the skillet or unmolded on the plate. A great lunch."

Play Jacques Pépin makes classic scrambled eggs

"The way I scramble eggs is to put them into a heavier saucepan over moderate heat, and to use a whisk to constantly move the eggs, ensuring that they get the creamiest texture without large curds. This is usually finished with a little bit of cream. It’s a sophisticated way of enjoying eggs, one I often serve as a first course for an elegant dinner."
