R5 Coffee with: Jean-Claude Lanchais

TV Food Show I Love/Hate I’m not a big fan of the Iron Chef. Chopped is more of a true competition. I like the classic cooking shows with Jacques Pepin, Emeril Lagasse, and my favorite is Dessert Circus with Jacques Torres.

I Hate It When a Diner at My Restaurant... asks for medium rare and it gets sent out medium rare, but the guest returns it.

I Never Cook with… shortening. I prefer to use butter or blend of olive oil.
