I love that your latest cookbook, A Grandfather’s Lessons, was inspired by your 13-year-old granddaughter, Shorey. “We were not even supposed to do a book! Shorey and I started working together on [2015 TV series] Heart & Soul. It was a lot of fun to work together, so we decided to do a series of videos, and my daughter said, ‘You have to do a book!’ Thirty-six of the 75 recipes we taped in a video. We even did videos on table manners, how to fold napkins. The book covers everything from arctic char with fresh tomato to a hot dog cut so that it curls up when you cook it.” How long have you been cooking with Shorey? “I started when she was a year and a half old. I put a spoon in her hand when I was holding her and helped her stir the pot. Since she was 4 or 5 years old, when she came to the house, she’d get involved. When she was small, she’d help hand me ingredients or stir the soup or wash vegetables. It’s also a question for … [Read more...] about How to Cook Like Legendary Chef Jacques Pépin

For the last four hours, the only thing that has been keeping you going is the Dry Martini that’s fixed at the pinnacle of your brain, emitting brilliant rays of healing light like the Holy Grail in a 14th-century Italian painting. And now, finally, whatever it was that was grinding through your patience like Laurence Olivier with a dental drill is behind you and the only thing in front of you is the bartender, and she’s taking your order. “Gin Martini, please, up with a twist. Dry, but not too dry.” The anticipation is making the ridges and grooves of your cerebrum switch places, but now she’s back and there’s the little napkin and aahhhh, the drink’s down on it and—hold on, is a Dry Martini supposed to be pink?

He was 73. Capra Jr. died Wednesday night at a hospital in Philadelphia, said Bill Vassar, the executive vice president of Wilmington-based EUE/Screen Gems Studios, of which Capra was president. Vassar said Capra died following a long fight with prostate cancer, which had spread over the past several months.
