  • ESSENTIAL PEPIN: More Than 700 All-Time Favorites from My Life in Food
    By Jane Doe - September 4, 2011 - Kirkus
    The world-famous chef returns with more than 700 handpicked recipes retooled for the vicissitudes of today's kitchen and garnered from more than 60 years of experience.Pepin's latest (Jacques Pepin More Fast Food My Way, 2008, etc.) reflects the insouciant grandeur of a man whose phenomenal influence and success in modern cooking can hardly be exaggerated: the author of 18 bestselling books; winner of an Emmy Award for his syndicated PBS series; recipient of the Légion d'Honneur; etc. Yet he miraculously manages to convey with freshness and excitement his life's passion to equip home cooks of every stripe with something to please every palate. Soups, salads, puddings, soufflés and crepes are all on display, as well as recipes for charcuterie and offal in addition to standard fare like poultry and game. The author organizes this wealth of information into a harmonious and fascinating read. Pepin's roots run deep and true, and he fittingly closes with a recipe for Mulled Wine and a tribute to his boyhood home: "On cold winter nights, this is the drink of choice for farmers in the Beaujolais area of Burgundy, where I come from."Showcases a lifetime of remarkable achievements by the ambassador of French cuisine.

  • The best cookbook I own!
    By Sue - July 12, 2015 - PBS
    Jacques has so many simple things that are fantastic in this book...a few ingredients and you have braised pears in caramel sauce, leek and gruyere quiche, slow cooked pork roast, blade steak with herbs, peach gratin. You can scale up with more complex dishes like chicken ragout, or coffee and hazelnut dacqoise. Like cooking with an old friend, this cookbook is not to be missed! Read full review
  • " The Man is a Genius"
    By Teezart - January 13, 2012 - PBS
    Jacques is a most talented chef.., been watching him for years. The book was a gift for my Son who is a college senior. I'm sure he will get a lifetime of great cooking ideas from this reference. I personally would have enjoyed color photos of at least some of the finished dishes.

    I would like to meet Jacques some day. He is a great professional, who apparently has enjoyed his passion for great food. Read full review
