Chef Jacques Pépin talks with the Seasoned crew in the kitchen of his Madison, Conn., home February 23, 2023.

Chef Plum realizes a lifelong dream in this episode of Seasoned. Jacques Pépin sits down for a conversation about his life, his career, and his artistic muse: the humble chicken. Jacques touches on his culinary legacy, too: The Jacques Pépin Foundation.

Plus, meet the local nurse-turned-farmer behind Oui Charcuterie and get tips for assembling a simple charcuterie board with local salami and cheese, like the one Chef Plum created to share with Jacques.
