Great if you can follow a recipe!

I was given this book as a gift; never saw the show. The recipes are excellent but don't allow for much improvisation (in my experience!)--the low-fat adjustments he makes really need to be followed to the letter in order for the dishes to come out as well as they should. That said, if you are a recipe-follower, he does amazing things with short ingredient lists, easy cooking techniques, and interesting combinations of ingredients. I especially like the potato-crusted fish recipe and the "spicy ginger chicken" (which is not at all spicy, but very tasty). There's also a great cole slaw recipe that uses curry powder--sounds weird, but it's delicious!

If you want to make esquisite fabulous food, buy this book!

Recipes are simple and yet show stopping. Delicious recipes I have made are Flan a'la Vanille,Peking Style Chicken, Warm Chocolate Fondue Souffle, Chocolate Paris-Brest, Chocolate Walnut and Apricot Cookies, and Potato and Watercress Salad to name a few.

Approachable and easy gourmet cuisine

There is something for every type of occasion or cook. Something simple for a weekday supper or something fancy for special occasion. Lots of pictures, and each recipe comes w/ time estimate and nutrition analysis that makes selecting menus so much simpler. Jacques Pepin is so good at making delicious cooking an everyday thing. Love this book.
