The JPF Membership program is a cornerstone of the vision and mission of the Jacques Pépin Foundation
Every JPF Member directly supports the JPF’s partnerships with culinary training programs nationwide. JPF Members receive full access to over 200 educational cooking videos in our Video Recipe Book, Cook with Jacques Pépin & Friends. This platform offers unlimited access to watch, read, and print from our ever-growing collection of recipes. It helps every JPF Member learn (or expand upon!) their own culinary techniques right in their home kitchens.
JPF Members participate in a personal way to support the Foundation's mission and advance Jacques' lifelong love of culinary arts education.
For decades, Jacques has brought recipes and culinary techniques to home cooks via video while teaching essential skills to aspiring professionals in academic settings. Culinary skills, and the process of learning these skills, increases self-confidence, improves health outcomes, and creates employment and career opportunities.

Frequently Asked Questions
- What is the JPF Membership Program?
JPF Memberships offer the unique opportunity to directly support the Mission and work of the Foundation.

The JPF Membership is one of the best ways to support the work of the Foundation and help advance Jacques’ lifelong love of culinary arts education. JPF Memberships can also be given as gifts! Learn more here.
- What is the difference between donating to the JPF and becoming a JPF Member?
Both options directly help support the Foundation’s partnerships with community-based culinary training programs nationwide. However, a JPF Membership additionally provides a donor with full access to over 200 cooking videos in the Video Recipe Book – a digital platform that merges celebrity table cookbook with a video subscription service. Each video is searchable, downloadable, and can be printed, providing hours of content that gives Members the chance to expand their own culinary techniques while supporting culinary education of others. It is a win-win!
- What are the differences between each of the JPF Membership levels?
Every JPF Membership level receives full access to the Video Recipe Book and a weekly Member email that highlights chefs or recipes in the Video Recipe Book. Membership donation levels are offered annually, quarterly, or monthly. Premium level JPF Memberships receive additional benefits including art posters, signed books, personalized items, early access to ticketed events and more. More on membership levels here.
- Do I need to become a JPF Member to support the Foundation?
A JPF Membership is the best way to support the JPF’s mission because JPF Members not only make a tax deductible donation contribution to the Foundation, but they also personally participate in the JPF’s work to teach culinary skills through various channels to many communities. If you would like to make a non-Membership donation, please visit our Donation page.
- How do JPF Members stay in the know about JPF events, initiatives, and work?
All JPF Members are automatically added to our email distribution list. JPF Members receive both the monthly newsletter and weekly Member emails. Monthly newsletters provide general information about Foundation work, initiatives, and upcoming events. Weekly Member emails highlight chefs or recipes, provide direct links to those highlighted features in the Video Recipe Book and offer advance word on ticketing or other member-benefits.
