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!
