Dean had the pleasure of meeting Jacques and Claudine Pepin at the recent Newport Mansions Wine and Food Festival in Newport , RI. They prepared a wonderful chicken dish along with a very comedic rapport that had the crowd roaring. The entire Pepin family attended and posed with their supporters for photos after. Old Yankee Cutting Boards were featured on the stage for food preparation by the chefs. Claudine now has an Old Yankee cutting board in her new kitchen.
