For the first time ever, the legendary chef Jacques Pépin collects and updates the best recipes from his six-decade career. This collection, specifically designed and enhanced for the ebook edition, makes all of the recipes instantly available and easy to find and also includes more than seventy minutes of video of Jacques Pépin himself demonstrating important cooking techniques refined through his years of experience.
In his more than sixty years as a chef, Jacques Pépin has earned a reputation as a champion of simplicity. His recipes are classics. They find the shortest, surest route to flavor, avoiding complicated techniques. Updated and streamlined for the contemporary kitchen, the recipes include Onion Soup Lyonnaise-Style, which Jacques enjoyed as a young chef while bar-crawling in Paris; Linguine with Clam Sauce and Vegetables, a frequent dinner chez Jacques; Five-Peppercorn Steak, his spin on a bistro classic; Mémé’s Apple Tart, which his mother made every day in her Lyon restaurant; and Warm Chocolate Fondue Soufflé, part cake, part pudding, part soufflé, and pure bliss.
Essential Pépin spans the many styles of Jacques’s cooking: homey country French, haute cuisine, fast food Jacques-style, and fresh contemporary American dishes. Many of the recipes are globally inspired, from Mexico, across Europe, or the Far East.
This spectacular enhanced ebook truly is the essential Pépin.
