For inspiration, William Paterson University's Distinguished Lecturer Series presents Chef Jacques Pépin.
He's known as a guest judge on Bravo TV's Top Chef, but before the advent of the ubiquitous culinary-based shows that have become a staple in today's pop culture, there was Julia and Jacques, a show featuring two internationally recognized gourmet chefs – Julia Child and Jacques Pépin.
