Product Description

Review

"A must-have for any cookbook fan."
--Edward Ash Millby for USA Today

"...simple without being dumbed down; approachable yet still adventurous... Whether he's explaining how to make Escoffier quenelles with mushroom sauce, black sea bass gravlax...or tarte tatin, [Pepin] makes it seem doable and shares tidbits of wisdom to boost confidence and kitchen knowledge... For serious cooks and beginners alike, this is an instant classic that would enhance almost any collection."
-Publishers Weekly, starred

"Jacques Pépin has been a constant inspiration to me. This book is a distillation of the very best of his creations, showing both the remarkable breadth of his cooking and the beautiful continuity of his dishes over the past sixty years. He makes food the way it should be made: Simple, seasonally ripe, pure, and impossible to resist."
—Alice Waters

"Jacques Pepin is The Master. The undisputed authority on . . . well, just about everything relating to food. If Jacques Pepin tells you this is the way to make an omelet — or to roast a chicken, then for me, the matter is settled. As with all his works, this is a vital, essential volume that should live in your kitchen forever. Nobody knows more or does it better."
—Anthony Bourdain

"If there's a 'best of the best' in cookbooks, this is it--a lifetime of greatest hits from our favorite ambassador of French cuisine. These recipes are more than just mouthwatering; they are as lively, unpretentious, and appealing as the man behind them, reminding us (as if we needed reminding) why we fell in love with French food, and with Jacques Pépin, in the first place. An essential collection from an essential chef."
—Dan Barber

"Jacques Pepin is a true artist and a masterful one at that. His commitment to excellence and dedication to quality education are evident throughout his storied career. Essential Pepin reflects his incredible body of work in what feels like an important literary achievement, and we, his pupils, are ever so fortunate to benefit from the breadth of knowledge within its pages. I often find that with Jacques Pepin, whether in print or on television, I walk away from my time with him having learned a little something more, and I feel a bit richer for that."
—Lidia Bastianich

A collection of the chef's distilled recipes, this collection is a wonderful compilation of tasty feasts. We have tried a dozen of these and not one flop. Scanning many of the untried ones indicate that they would all be successful. Alas one can only eat so much food a day.

A very enjoyable read and helpful tips. Wish it also included picture of the dish, but all in all very worthwhile.

I'm a man.What do I know about cooking? LoL. Bought this as a gift.Was worried about the lack of pictures.Not an issue.They loved it.What's not to love.It is PEPIN.There response to no pictures was if they needed to look at them they'd look on the internet for some.There you have it.And instead of a hundred recipes with a bunch of hi glossy photos you get 7 hundred recipes.Hope this was helpful
