Description

In his more than sixty years as a chef, Jacques Pépin has earned a reputation as a champion of simplicity. His classic recipes find the shortest, surest route to flavor, avoiding complicated techniques. Now, in a book that celebrates his life in food, the world’s most famous cooking teacher selects his favorite recipes from the thousands he has created, streamlining them even further. In the accompanying searchable DVD, Jacques shines as a teacher, demonstrating all the techniques a cook needs to know.

Essential Pépin spans the many styles of Jacques’s cooking: homey country French, haute cuisine, fast food Jacques-style and contemporary American dishes. Many of the recipes are globally inspired—from Mexico, across Europe or the Far East. Make a batch of Onion Soup Lyonnaise-Style, which Jacques enjoyed as a young chef while bar-crawling in Paris, or enjoy Linguine with Clam Sauce and Vegetables: a favorite go-to dinner of his. Try Grilled Chicken with Tarragon Butter, which Jacques makes indoors in winter and outdoors in summer, as well as Five-Peppercorn Steak, his spin on a bistro classic. For dessert, there’s Mémé’s Apple Tart, which his mother made every day in her Lyon restaurant, and Warm Chocolate Fondue Soufflé, which is part cake, part pudding, part soufflé—and pure bliss. This truly is the essential Pépin.
