September 2004
On September 22nd, Jimmie & I had the opportunity to meet Jacques Pepin at a luncheon and book signing at the Getty Center in Los Angeles, California.  Jacques was promoting his newest book, Fast Food My Way.  We had the opportunity to have our book signed by Jacques, along with a couple of books we already owned.  I had the opportunity to have Jacques sign my copy of Julia & Jacques Cooking at Home, which I had signed by Julia Child in February 2000.

Jacques Pepin is a very pleasant man.  Quite willing to personalize autographs, take photos and chat with you.  We enjoyed meeting him very much.
