The line of people showing up for the impromptu book signing event by Jacques Pepin during the Amelia Island Petanque America Open last weekend pulled in hundreds of gourmet enthusiasts. Pepin who started his career with cooking for French Presidents moved to the US in 1959 and became a TV personality alongside Julia Child. With 26 cook books under his belt he surely has a proliferate career to show for. Besides that he’s a great ambassador for the game of Petanque which has gotten a tremendous push during the fabulous tournament.
