This is Volume Two of the DVD collection to accompany the excellent PBS series Fast Food My Way by Jacques Pepin. It includes two DVDs, each showing detailed preparation of four complete meals. Each of the eight programs starts with something really simple which can be prepared in minutes with little or no cooking. One example is a pico de gallo salsa and another is Asian spring rolls stuffed with onions, sardines, and salad.
The other courses are all within reach of intermediate cooks and are sophisticated enough for entertaining. I'd enjoy eating pretty much everything he prepares here, but would be more likely to return to chicken breasts with garlic and parsley or red snapper with tomatoes and cream. He focuses on presentation as well as preparation, and many of the completed dishes would not be out of place in a nice French restaurant. You'll need a bigger budget for this set than you did for volume one since the ingredients for some of the meals on this disk can be a bit expensive. He makes his seviche with fresh scallops instead of fish and his beef stew with tenderloin. One recipe calls for salmon, another for lobster, and there is champagne on fruit for dessert.
Since this is only Volume Two, if you want the whole the series, you will need volumes one and three also. In that case, its a bit more economical to buy them as a set instead of individually. It's Jacques Pepin Fast Food My Way Set of 3 DVDs. The original series had twenty six episodes, but sadly even with all three DVD sets, you still only get twenty four. It's too bad that in order to offer three volumes with eight episodes each that they dropped two programs from the series.
