Great food to make.

I learn about this book when I was visiting my sisters house. SInce then Have buy it for other family members too.

The 2 books with Claudine are my favorites

I have 12 cookbooks authored by Jacques Pépin, and the two books with his daughter Claudine are my favorites. According to the introduction, the purpose of the book is to teach cooking to Claudine, who is in grad school, and has limited experience in the kitchen. These books contain many recipes which are impressive both in appearance and flavor, but are relatively easy to prepare. They are great for impressing a date, or your spouse! By the way, I had the orginal book, Jacques Pepin's Kitchen: Cooking With Claudine (Jacques Pepin's Kitchen (Television Program).) for many years before I got this one. I thought that it would be just more of the same, but they are really different enough to justify owning both. I like this one a little bit better. Now if only they would release the show on DVD.


Delicious French cooking for the home. Chef Pepin relies on technique and not on extravagant ingredients. Each of the 26 sections in the book features a complete menu. All recipes are well explained and easy to follow, the final dishes are shown in photographs. I have tried several of the dishes and liked every single one. Some of the dishes are very simple with a nice twist, as in the Scallop and Potato Napoleons where simple baking potatoes are turned into an elegant dish, or in the Stuffed Butternut Squash where an otherwise sweet vegetable becomes piquant. Other dishes are more involved but not complicated at all. And all ingredients are readily available on farmers' markets and in grocery stores.

A must have Book for anyone who enjoys complex flavours.

A must have book for anyone who enjoys complex flavours, which not only work together, but, are staisfying, and lighter in in fat. The PBS master of French cuisine has done it again! In this Offering Jacques and (his daughter) Claudine, put together meals which are not only satisfying, but, appealing to all the senses. This is done in a manner in which the novice can accomplish, without being condescending to the more experienced home gastronome. Colourful photos, and artwork, as well as, straight forward directions, and descriptions (of both menus and ingredients), motivate the reader into the creation of a cullinary frenzy, wether it be for family, or home entertaining. This is a "MUST HAVE", for anyone who enjoys good food, with a healthy twist!

French Cooking made easy!

This is the companion book to the PBS series of the same title, also the "sequel" to "Cooking w/ Claudine", the celebrated French chef Jacques Pepin's first cooking show w/ his daughter. Having seen both shows and read both books, I have to say this is a even better one. Recipes are written w/ clear instructions, each one marks w/ time to prepare, nutrition information, and possible alternative menus. I have made several dishes out of this book and they all taste wonderful. One of the best and easiest dessert I have ever had is in this book (warm chocolate tartlet w/ nuts). Jacques' signature is not only to make French cooking easy, he also modernizes his dishes such that they are healthy as well. A must buy for any gourmet home chef.
