Jacques Pepin vegetable soup with poached egg recipe form the mid 1990's

I'm looking for a Jacques Pepin recipe and I can't seem to find it anywhere. It was on the cooking show he had at the time, and he served it with parmesan crisps. anyone? help!

  1. This is my primary complaint about Jacques Pepin. You see these great things on TV and then you say well I want that recipe. And you never have any clue what book it is in. I've stopped watching his show because of this. It is frustrating. I emailed them once about it.

    1. Have you looked in the newly-released "Essential Pepin"? It is over 600 recipes - I imagine it is in there.

      @drake0388 - The KQED website has a lot of the more recent shows' recipes. There are other TV chefs - e.g. Lidia Bastianich - whose recipes are shared online far less than M. Pepin's are.

        I thumbed through Essential Pepin at Costco ($24 there) but resisted temptation. I did notice a few vegetable soup recipe titles in the index though they did not mention poached egg, which may well have just been an additional fillip for the TV show.
