Ever watch Fast Food My Way with Jacques Pépin? I can't help but notice that he is always salivating. Maybe it's just a 'conditional reflex'... (as outlined in the Wiki link below). If I were Jacques, I'd salivate too. (knowing what rewards awaited after each taping...those great eats). IMO, he epitomizes a truly excellent chef. His skills are evident in his dishes and in his preparation of them. I find the slurping slash salivating entertaining.
Very entertaining with Julia...remember those?
