  • This reply from Jacques has made my day... I can't imagine how you feel! Both of you, keep up the amazing work.

    • This is beautiful.

    • I’m assuming as you read this you are working on his challenge...

    • Very awesome! Great job!

    • U r the only one! Watch his series and u will comprehend our euphoria! Pepin is a humble GOD! Extremely hard working. Never wasting food. Impressive imagination and in the same time - incredible discipline to keep the old tradition of classical French cuisine alive! He is an international treasure!

    • I cannot be the only one getting the snobby and belittling wibe..

  • The Legend himself. I fucking love him.

  • This seriously made me cry. Jacques is an absolute legend, and second only to Julia herself, my favorite chef. Congrats, you deserve it!

  • My omelettes taste wonderful, but look like a plate of slop. Oh well.

  • fuck, I'd cry if someone like pepin saw my cooking and approved of it

  • Alex I just subscribed to your channel but I’m trying to watch all ur videos cuz ur really amazing and funny at the same time. Could u try the fried chicken ft owl. I would be very happy if u would notice me thanks!

  • He is all class.

  • The Lord himself has spoken! Congratulations my bro

  • Alex, the secret to Jacques cooking is he always has a glass of wine while he is cooking, You should travel to Connecticut and meet the man.

  • Time to bone a chicken!! Can't wait!

  • So cool! Congrats Alex!

  • damnnnn. Legend status dawg.

  • Wow what an honour to be recognised and admired by a true legend. That must be an amazing feeling.

  • French guy: i have this old pan.......better buy a new one Jacks : hold my beer( pops a whole wall of pans)

  • Someone's cutting onions...Congrats! Very satisfying (even got a little emotional) seeing my favorite chef heap praise on my favorite young chef. Bravo!


  • Wow to be friends with Jacques! Impressive! BTW, love your videos too!

  • now get a dozen of chickens and start taping!

  • SENPAI NOTICED YOU I also tried the omelette it’s getting better the 2nd try I got the color right but too much heat and it broke a little cause the outside was crisp the 3rd try I got everything perfect except the color

  • Yes!!

  • Wow, one of the top chefs in the world likes your food. That's an honour sir, be proud!

  • I also loved it when u made eggs on television

  • Jaques Pepin admires you! Congrats! Get ready to debone a chicken. Challenge 101!

  • haha sympaaa!

  • Wow! That JP would be so publicly encouraging is wonderful. I always liked him, but my admiration for JP just went off the charts. And Alex - I can't tell you how much I love your work.

  • ermahgerd

  • I love Jacques Pepin! Congratulations, Alex!

  • Congratulations! You are now officially important. 😃

  • This is wonderful! Congratulations, Alex!

  • High praise!!

  • Mssr. Pepin has a lot of p-pans.

  • Not getting any audio from the video!

  • congrats !!

  • Wah~~ Jacques Pepin is such a cute and lovely gentleman

  • DESERVED! Discovered your channel from that old tony, and I have been binge watching... great inspiration! Would love to hear your take on one of my other passions espresso/latte....

  • That’s amazing I even teared up a little. I’m such a baby.

  • well now, get to it my friend! on to the chicken..

  • Why is there no sound on the video for me ? :,(

  • Wow, this channel just gets better and better the more I watch. I'm loving it. I haven't been this excited about cooking in a long time.

  • Debone a chicken. hahaha!

  • WOW!

  • What a gentleman.

  • I love cooking and this makes me want to go back to basics and hone my cooking skills and make the PERFECT omelette.

  • Great job Alex! I look forward to the boned out chicken video!

  • I have been watching you cook since I was a little boy. I do not cook professionally but I have learned so much from you and your colleagues. I love to cook and I love to see people enjoy my food. My daughter even trucks with me and we love it. Thank you from everyone you have inspired.

  • He has a better accent than you

  • Jacques is the man!

  • Man if JP gives you probs I’m gonna smash that subscribe button.

  • congratulation

  • Now you need to beat the rest of the top chefs - like the "Mr F''king raw".

  • I’m so proud of you Alex! Great job! Now I need to step my own omelette game up.

  • Oui!

  • I love Jacques Pepin!

  • Jacques Pepin is one of my cooking inspirations. I've been watching him since I was 10 years old. I'm 51 now and still cooking.

  • This is amazing!!!

  • oh my god congrats alex!!! you deserve it!!!

  • Nice...I scored you at a 9.5, apparently I was low. Great job and killer filming.

  • If Chef Pepin says you're good, you're good. What an honor to be acknowledged by a legend. Congrats, sir!

  • Wow, that is quite an honour indeed. I am so thrilled for you Alex. Tres bien. I am so enthralled with watching your videos. Been binge watching them. Your dogheadness and determination is admirable. I grew up with a mother that let me cook by her side and who loved cooking. I watched TV shows and saw Canadian TV shows with Johanne Benoit, the queen of French Canadian cooking in the 60's and 70's. It wasn't until I was in my 20's i saw reruns of Julia Child's original shows but I watched current shows of Jacques and Julia cooking together. I have that cookbook here, at home, and use it occasionally. I feel that cooking is one of the most important life skills a child can learn. I've taught my two daughters, who are now 18 and 16, how to cook good food, from an early age. An obesity doctor I follow on twitter said, in his mind, the single best thing you can do, as a parent, is teach your child the skill of cooking home cooked food. Not soccer, not football, not hockey but simple made from scratch meals. So many obesity patients don't know how to start cooking anything from simple ingredients. Everyone has to eat right? It should be a basic life-skill taught, like reading or arithmetic, in my mind. A fundamental necessary life tool, forever useful for the rest of your life. Thank you so much Alex for your enthusiasm, your joie de vivre, your personality, your accent (I wish i could imitate it better but I tend to slip into Quebecois accent too much haha, I live in Quebec). Merci et a bientot.

  • I love your videos man. Like Alton Brown, combining engineering with cooking but with your own unique style

  • 😢😍😎😮💝👊👊🐔

  • Classy!!!

  • aaaaa congrats!

  • Wow those words from mr pepin :O What a great honour for you Alex! Keep up the good work Alex :D

  • Yaaaaaaaaaaaaay! This feels like a personal victory to me! Well done!

  • t as bon hein :D ! CONGRATS

  • My heart is warmed by this.

  • Wow! That was very nice. He is one of my top 3 Master Chef's.

  • next is to bone arab chicken?

  • Thats is the heaven.. Jacques Pepin is a great chef.. y amazing person... congratulations Alex

  • What a high honor! I am glad he said it turned out perfect though, cuz it definitely was!


  • "On television" 😂

  • Well done chef!


  • wow

  • Wow!

  • Alex I literally laughed so hard! AMAZING you got a response! Thanks from all of us Jacques!!

  • Alex, Now that you have accomplished this great feat, you should continue and make a whole series out of this... Try to make Gordan Ramsey's signature dish the beef wellington, and get him to react to your video. GR is a very critical chef. you could also do this for many other chefs.

  • Ok, this is the definition of "cool"!!! A reply from Jacques Pepin, and a positive one at that, is as good as it gets!!! Good work Alex! You're obsession for perfection is paying off! I also really enjoyed your pursuit of perfect Ramyun!!!

  • Like your channel and love Jacques Pepin!

  • 🌸🌸

  • wow! congrats my man!

  • Pepin shows this classic omelet cooking method as a traditional one, but how was this done before the teflon pan ?

  • omg, thats awesome and yes... next bone out a chicken in like ten seconds like Jacques does


  • Hi Alex: I have a challenge for you! Can you make one of the rarests pastas in the world? Only 10 People in the world are known to make it. The name of this pasta, I'm sure you are aware is called "su filindeu". Please try and succeed where Jamie Oliver has failed: us-tv.org/tv/video-rHGZLjJ1CAk.html

  • You both are great and wonderful god bless!!

  • im so happy at the moment :)

  • Good job, mate!

  • yesssss you did it xD

  • Alex, if you want to rise to the deboning a chicken challenge, watch this: us-tv.org/tv/video-K3fIl5T3XsU.html. It's an episode of Rachel Ray's show where Jacques Pepin prepares a Ballotine of Chicken, stuffed with Spinach, Cheese and Croutons, and served with a delicious jus. Could you please give this recipe a go? It looks perfect for a dinner party, or a romantic dinner.

  • This is pretty pretty awesome

  • "on television"

    • he's 82 so probably doesn't understand the internet and you can watch youtube on most TVs, Claudine probably showed him on a TV

  • My guru...congratulates you. I collected his library of books and videos now you are recommended to continue by Jacques Pepin and I must subscribe.

  • Wow. Congratulations Alex. Coming from Jacques, you've practically been knighted.

  • This was awesome. I actually looks at that video of Jaques Pepin making an classic french omelete as a guide, but to this day I cannot make it perfect and I experience the exact same problems as Alex did. Thanks you Alex for breaking it down to make trouble shooting easy. Salute

  • I remember when we got cable TV in India in 1994. I used to watch Jacque Pepin's cooking show a lot.
