WATCH: Jacques Pepin’s Biggest Fan Is This 4-Year-Old, Surprised With a Cooking Lesson

Oh sweet god. Please avoid watching this video if you’re feeling weak in the ovaries. So, Rachael Ray received a home video of a teeny child named Zeke, who is four-years-old and would totally freak out every time Jacques Pepin appeared on his TV.

So Rachael sent him to “a cooking class for kids,” which was actually code for sending him to Jacques Pepin’s house. And guess who’s great with toddlers? Jacques Pepin.

“This is a fancy house!” Zeke exclaimed upon crossing the threshold. We won’t spoil the whole thing for you, but you should know that when Zeke later joins Rachael and Jacques on set, he firmly announces, “Jacques Pepin is my best friend.” Ours, too, Zeke. Ours, too.

Check out the segment below.
