    Are we gonna ignore the fact that he stuck the pointy end of the knife right at his stomach ( 1:53 )?

      It's not a paring knife, it's an X-acto knife. And yes, they are incredibly sharp.

    You can also use the mushroom fish as a stamp, I guess? Though I'd rather waste a potato on that.

    Give a mushroom a fish and you feed it for a day. Teach it to fish, and you feed it for a lifetime.

    Sensational! Thank you for teaching us. Please, Mr Pepin, make a video on how to build a menu. What combines with what. With your daughter, you made wonderful menus. But they seem to come from your experience. Could not you give us some references on how to build a 3-course lunch and then a whole menu? Thank you very much. If you can, please talk more about meat. Here in Brazil, we eat a lot of meat. I've seen Julia Child's video about steak and it's sensational. With champignon and wine. Would you do the same way the beef? Thank you very much for everything you teach us, I appreciate it very much and send a kiss to your beautiful daughter and granddaughter. It's always a pleasure to watch videos of you cooking together.
