    On top of the technical skill regarding all of these videos for BA I just love how NONE of the food is wasted which is indicative of the economy of not just French cooks but home cooks as well in the early to mid 20th century. Even the skin was used for something, tea.

    Am I the only one weirded out by a legendary French chef wearing a Hedley & Bennett apron?

    [Yes, I understand that BA more than likely has an agreement/contract with H&B.]

    i'd keep that in mind, the a dry apple peel would make a very pleasant tea for later.

    wow, woa, bliss, incredible, incroyable, bla bla
    my mom peels the same way, i peel the same way, there's nothing admirable about this, it is just normal peeling.

      The people are not praising the technique they're praising the great chef introducing the technique to them and probably they are trying to make happy an elderly person either with the good or bad idea of how Jacques would feel about those comments. Also the speed and the familiarity of Jacques hands with the knife makes it look very good and make a simple task look good like he does always deserve credit.

    • 忍野忍
      忍野忍 11 months ago +1

      i don't, that is the point.
      But maybe I should, I just didn't know my apple peeling skills deserved praise

      It's all in what you're taught and the tools you use. My family never peels apples; we just run them through the apple slicer/corer doohickey. So seeing the correct technique for using just a knife instead to peel and core is very useful. One more everyday tool I can expunge from my stuff drawer!

      Drunken Master II 11 months ago +4

      dEaD mEmE why? Because Jacques replied? You think he replied because of a comment on a video of another youtube channel? Like I said it’s not how the internet works, also my comment was made after the reply by Jacques, I was already aware that Alex managed to get his attention.
      By the way if you want to communicate that type of information use Twitter instead of a TVclip comment.

      it's unlikely but possible that Jacques would still be in contact with B.A., and considering F.G.C. was trying to get Jacques's attention simply by shouting on the internet, I don't think it's that stupid to be commenting on any video starring Jacques...
