Chef Jacques Pépin has released a tabletop and kitchen item collection with Sur La Table. Pépin, the longtime friend of Julia Child and personal chef to French president Charles de Gaulle, has designed the new line with his own artwork, featuring chickens, vegetables and handwritten menus. Among the products are a 16-piece earthenware set; an autographed, limited-edition Mauviel 3-quart sauteuse pan with chef’s lid; and tabletop, kitchen and baking accessories (including kitchen aprons and towels and handcrafted ceramic mugs, plates and baking pans) with artwork featuring beets and tomatoes.
Pépin’s new cookbook, “Poulets & Legumes, My Favorite Chicken & Vegetable Recipes,” which also features his artwork, is being released as part of the collection. The new collection is available online.
