    I love that there are cook books on Good Reads. I really enjoy reading cook books and this was no exception. If you ever watch his series "Fast Food My Way" on PBS you will be hooked. Jacques Pepin is a world renown French classical chef but in this book he uses simple techniques and pantry ingredients to create wonderful dishes. He even uses store bought sugar cookie dough to make a tart. My kind of chef. So if you are looking for simple recipes and great taste get this book! I especially like the sweet potato soup with apples.

    Pepin is, like Bittman, a bit of a minimalist, but his concentration is on "fast food" made fresh from good ingredients. This is definitely not your McDonald's fast food! It's healthy yet indulgent. I'm not sure what's up with all his damn fruit-for-dessert recipes (fruit is not a dessert, in my opinion), but aside from that, he's got lots of unique recipes that can be whipped up in about 20-30 minutes. Plus there's plenty of food porn pix here to get you salivating. Looking forward to trying them!

    Pepin uses a traditional format and provides interesting options for easy cooking. I tried a couple of recipes and found them tasty, easy, and useful. I plan to purchase the book.

    Jacques Pepin is a true national treasure. He is more than a master chef and more than a TV personality. At the very heart of it, he is a teacher. He educates more than entertains. The real delight in watching Jacques Pepin cook on television is the personal instruction he provides. It is as if he is cooking just for you and giving you personal one on one time with him in the kitchen.This particular book, in conjunction with the TV show, is perfect for both the novice cook as well as the more advanced. It is meant to provide ideas for quick meals that do not require a lot of prep time and can be served to family and friends without seeming to be rushed or hurried. In short, these are recipes for easy yet sophisticated meals. The chef is not ashamed to utilize canned ingredients for convenience along with fresh ingredients.One very simple recipe, Spinach, Macadamia Nuts and Raisinsbest exemplifies how varied flavors and textures can be developed from just a few main ingredients. Further, Pepin's recipe for the classic Peach Melba utilizes canned peaches and frozen raspberries for convenience with the results being both simple an sophisticated.

    I had to check the copyright of this book because the recipes & photos look like they were published in one of those 1960s cookbooks full of jello molds & horrifying meat dishes! One of the recipes is even called "tomato surprise." Most of the dishes sound & look downright foul, like the Harlequin salad: tomato halves stuffed with jiggly hard-boiled eggs, on a bed of mayonnaise, sprinkled with olives, and bordered with anchovies. Revolting!

    I tried the "Chocolate rochers with hazelnuts" and it was delicious. My husband ended up having those for breakfast as well! The rochers were very easy to make, and the outcome makes you feel that you are ready to open up a chocolate store. Very delicious.

    Easy, delicious. Some of the appetizers would be great to take to parties; people will think you spent lots of time, but in reality, the dishes come together in just minutes. I really appreciate how his recipes are conscientious of minimizing waste and fully maximizing flavor.

    We have enjoyed all of the recipes I've tried so far from this cookbook. Some of the ingredients are hard to find in our area, so I haven't (and probably won't) tried everything. Really good, and relatively simple fast food.

    I have watched Jacques cook most of these recipes on PBS, but to now have the book with them in hand is just delightful! The anticipation of being able to replicate these dishes is something I am looking forward to and know I will enjoy for many days ahead!!

    Simple food, simply prepared. The emphasis is on fresh ingredients which is difficult for us in the northern climes.

    It's the small things, the small techniques, and the personal whimsy of the author that make this book enjoyable.

    While returning this book to the publisher, I perused through it. It has a lot of good looking recipes... and If I find it for less than $32 I will most likely grab it.
