Book Description

Essential Pepin Desserts showcases more than 150 of Jacques Pépin’s top dessert recipes from his lifetime in food. The five chapters (Fruit Desserts; Puddings, Sweet Soufflés, and Crepes; Cakes, Cookies, and Candies; Tarts, Pies, and Pastries; and Frozen Desserts) display his many cooking styles, from homey French (Mémés Apple Tart), to haute cuisine (Coffee and Hazelnut Dacquoise), to fast food Jacques style (Warm Chocolate Soufflés), to fresh contemporary American dishes (Top-Crust Cherry Pie). In the accompanying videos, Pépin demonstrates ten essential techniques, including segmenting an orange, working with pie dough, and making chocolate “balloons.”

4.0 out of 5 stars Essentially Pepin! December 12, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition with Audio/Video|Verified Purchase
I came late to an appreciation of Jacques Pepin's competence and teaching ability but he has become one of my favorite chefs/food writers/cookbook authors and his Essential Pepin: More Than 700 All-Time Favorites from My Life in Food is one of my favorite cookbooks, one that quickly made my very short list of must-have books, so I was delighted to see his wonderful and extensive selection of desserts in Kindle format. Sometimes I just find it more convenient to take my iPad into my kitchen, which is rather small, rather than a large print book, and I've noticed over the years that it seems to be recipes for desserts that I most often refer to.

I noticed that the publisher has included the same preview for this Kindle "just desserts" volume of Essential Pepin Desserts: 160 All-Time Favorites from My Life in Food as is available for the entire volume, almost none of which applies to this Desserts Only book, so let me give you a run-down of what you'll find.

First, do be aware that this is an interactive book which includes 13 of Pepin's marvelous videos (these come on a separate CD with the print version) that have been wonderfully interfaced in the text where appropriate, but these will not be accessible unless you are using a Kindle Fire, an iPad or perhaps other tablet app. The Mac version of the Kindle app does not support the video content. Otherwise, the book is essentially the same design as the paper version.

*****NOTE: I did find one rather huge error - the lengthy and excellent video demonstrating how to make puff pastry was somehow omitted.

3.0 out of 5 stars Videos Do Not Open on Kindle for Mac September 24, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition with Audio/Video
Wonderful book but none of the videos are viewable on a Mac. Instead there's an error message that states they exist but cannot be loaded on "your device." Your call.
