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 love to eat but are afraid to cook gourmet, Jacques Pepin and Claudine shows you how to have a gourmet meal every day. The recipes are easy to follow and delicious. Its handy if you cook for yourself or a small family. The book is an absolute must if you follow the show on PBS. I never thought I could cook such wonderful dishes until I used this book.

In Jacques Pepin's Kitchen : Cooking With Claudine, it's easy to believe that anyone can cook delicious food. Pepin uses the ruse of showing his beloved daughter some of the tricks of his trade to show the reader how to compose a menu and cook some of his favorite, classic dishes. Each step is carefully explained and even readers with limited cooking experience should fine it enjoyable and easy to follow his instructions.
Work your way through this book and you'll have no trouble enchanting your guests or your family. These lovely meals are for sharing.

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.

Format: Hardcover
(Hardcover edition) A great cooking book, beautifully put together with ample pictures and large enough type to allow ease of use. I was disappointed that it *didn't* have more technique tips and guides on equipment- but I guess this is available in the paperback version. Can't wait to eat!

And here was the perfect gift for my daughter. Not only because it's a great father/daughter project, but because in the whole book, there is no use of two foods my daughter is allergic to! Win-Win!

I had a copy of this cookbook before, but it got water-damaged and I wanted a replacement.
It came quickly and in fine shape.
