Watch Jacques Pepin Cook Oeufs En Cocotte

The legendary chef elevates a simple recipe.

Jacques Pepin is as charming as ever, and he still knows what he's doing in the kitchen. In this bonus video from Mind of a Chef, Pepin prepares oeufs en cocotte — that's eggs in a pot — two different ways and explains to Gabrielle Hamilton how cooks can take recipes and make them their own. "After you've done it once, you know what it smells like, you know what it tastes like. The second time you do it, you take a faster look at the recipe — 'yeah, yeah.' By the third time, you start improving it. ... And a year later, you've done it 15 times. It has become your recipe."
