Valentine's Day: Jacques Torres Style

Valentine’s Day is a special day for many, but for Jacques Torres, the holiday of love is as special as they come.  Unlike Christmas shopping which lasts several weeks, Valentine’s Day is just a few days of delicious mayhem!  Not only were Jacques’ stores in NYC packed to the gills this year, but his PR team, yours truly, worked feverishly to oversee 5 TV segments – all airing on February 14th!  We wouldn’t want you to miss out on some behind-the-scenes shots of Jacques on Today, The Chew, Better TV, Bloomberg TV’s Rewind with Matt Miller, and Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live.  Scroll down to enjoy!

Jacques trying his best to convince a supermodel to kiss his chocolate frog live for their tease. They couldn't stop laughing!


This is the chocolate mousse inside Jacques' home made chocolate cups right before the whole crew ate every last drop.

Jacques and the lovely ladies in red on Valentine's Day - moments before they whip up some amazing sweet treats.


Rebecca's favorite box of chocolates which she lifted from the set right after the segment.


Jacques back stage at The Chew playing hide + go seek behind his huge heart of chocolates. What you don't see is just moments before he was learning how to chair dance from a Pussycat Doll!


Jacques always has a blast at Better with hosts Audra and JD.  They made his I LOVE U Puzzle.


Bloomberg TV’s Rewind with Matt Miller paid Jacques a visit to learn all about Jacques’ business and how the economy affects chocolate prices.


Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live sent a couple on a blind date to Jacques’ Hudson Street workshop!


Valentine’s Day may be over, but Jacques and his team doesn’t stop.  It’s on to Easter – see you in April!
