    His knife skills are still amazing...how nice of him to suggest us mere mortals to use a food processor without making us guilty about it! Without a doubt the coolest octogenarian on the planet!

    I made this 2 days ago, but needed to substitute Chalotes with yellow onlin due to quarantine and I used dries chives and my family was so overwhelmed by this that I need to do it today. It will be permanent side dish on our menue.

    I'm not so crazy about carrots but I bet these are amazing. And I could watch him cook anything. Eggs make me nauseous, but I've watched his omelette video at least 10 times. Thank you Jacques

      I'm glad people are finally realising that its not the demon they were led to believe. There's been a battle against butter in Ireland since i was a young lad, if you knew how many times i've had to refuse those tubs of oily slop they sell because "butter will give you a heart attack", all the while exporting some of the best butter in the world.
      A shame.

    Jacques' autobiography is a wonderful read. The Apprentice : My Life in the Kitchen is the title and it is winding tale of adventures in skiing, meeting world leaders and living life through the lens of a chef.

    I figured some of this out a while ago, but I use honey instead of sugar and no olive oil. The shallots are a nice touch. And... now that I am growing chives I'm going to add them. Jacques Pépin and inspiration are synonyms to me.

      @Epsensieg 18 Why are you surprised. You have a very aggressive outlook are you important or just a weed in a room with puter.
      Guess where I put you roots and all.

      MrAMYJACK 6 months ago

      @American Made Thought you wouldn't

    • American Made
      American Made 6 months ago

      Microwave would be just for warming up your carrots if they cool while you're waiting on other dishes; better than throwing them back in the pot. And I don't understand your question.

      MrAMYJACK 6 months ago

      @American Made Nah don't like using a microwave
      .Why does an american made have No Content.

    • American Made
      American Made 6 months ago

      That would depend on what else you're serving, and how well each dish can tolerate cooling for a few extra minutes. I find cooked carrots stand up well to reheating, so if something has to wait on other dishes this one could stand up to being warmed with a few seconds in the microwave.
      BTW never apologize for simply not knowing. No one wants to talk to people who think they have nothing to learn.

    Just give it a stir but you must use your fingers. What the hell.

  • Amarjeet Singh
    Amarjeet Singh 8 months ago

    also always cut from middle carrot for faster cooking since with this type of round cutting of carrot the inner hard portion takes more time to cook so to save on gas better to slit from middle n cut into pieces

  • Amarjeet Singh
    Amarjeet Singh 8 months ago

    should not have added water since salt would have automatically release water present in carrot to release n help it cook

    • L4D2_Ellis
      L4D2_Ellis 3 months ago

      He's not trying to dehydrate the carrot. He's using water so that the carrots don't dry out.

    • Joseph Campese
      Joseph Campese 8 months ago

      @Amarjeet Singh incoherent rantings between meds? not familiar with being told you're full of shit? or, has never had anyone challenge his foolishness. my money is on missing meds. @Jacque Pepin, Singh thinks your skill set is outdated. this despite your decades of experience. he however, fails to tell the world why his skill set is vastly superior.

    • Amarjeet Singh
      Amarjeet Singh 8 months ago

      Seem like doesn't have valid answers to any questions so better leave u in ur historic times enjoy n stay in peace rather than raising ur BP n going to hospital after me

    • Amarjeet Singh
      Amarjeet Singh 8 months ago

      If really like going historic many things need to be done use clay pots, wood fire, slow cooking, etc to really get the authentic taste

    • Brett Lessard

      exactly. If you're using big carrots that come pre-topped in 3 lb bags, it won't result in a quality side dish

    Jacques has led a very interesting life, if one takes the time to find out. For example, he turned down the job of ‘Head Chef’ of the White House under the JFK administration. Instead, he chose to take a much less prestigious job at Howard Johnson’s Restaurants.

      So it will caramelize and help build the glaze for the dish. A good variation is brown sugar and a splash of bourbon.
