      @Niftynorm1 de Gaulle? A tight wad? Shut the fuck up you have no idea what you are talking about. Pepin was cooking in the elysee, he certainly had a great pay, compared to what cooks earned at this time.

      Read his autobiography, one of the best biographies I've read, you'll see he really wasn't a big celebrity chef with lots of money back then. It was a different era.

      In those days chefs were paid very poorly it was also part of his national service. Plus De Gaulle was known to be a tight wad.

    How great it is.
    Beutiful Love Story.
    Note Please Americans have dreams & desire too Always have. I disagree with ot just being an immagrant.
    Having desire & oppurtunity makes it happen. Remember those who made it possible for all imigrants here.
    Other than that u r blessed from God.
    So many here in the US & the world have desire & will we along
    with countless others
    made that possible young man .yet are denied oportunity not only employment but also the right to live freely here. I thank God my parents made sure tney sacrificed & worked hard so we could live in good enviorment
    get educated. with that being said a lot of sacrifices. And did so for all of the family.
    Im appreciative to the Pepin family for sharing also apprcoate those who made it possible for you. That u must take into consideration & give thanks so many don"t it"s taken for granted. Watching the series you can see Jacques Pepin was driven , did it all for his family. No denying that.I can respect that. It does seem however certain individuals do not egknowledge the
    God Bless .Defenietly
    thiers were of privledge even though Mr. Pepin
    is very humbled in spirit & wisdom.
    His mother had to do one hell of a job.
    I must be honest
    his Wife (lovely)& daughter don't seem to have a clue it shows on the episodes unfortunantly.
    Hope I"m not mis- understood.Clue- less
    Nice Conocido!!!!
