Chef Ripert, owner of Le Bernardin and frequent "Top Chef" judge
Chef Eric Ripert recently blogged about his new television show to debut this fall. Ten episodes have been shot in location in Italy, Northern California and New York.
"Over the last few months I have been traveling quite a bit while taping a television show called, Avec Eric” which will air on PBS Television in the fall of this year. During these travels, I visited locations where food and tradition come together to create really special dining experiences. Olympus provided our crew with some fantastic cameras to use while we were on the road so that we could document the process of filming the show but also so that we might use them to record important details and discoveries.
The whole idea behind Avec Eric, whether it is the television show, the website and future books or other projects is to encourage people to 'cook from life'."
Is that wine for me? Lesigh.
ETA: I am LOLing at the MrJay questions - I didn't see that until y'all mentioned it! So here's a different photo:
