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.

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.

From one of today's Master Chefs comes a comprehensive book on desserts. But, then, everything Jacques Pepin does is comprehensive.

Recommended for anyone particularly interested in desserts. For others, his Jacques Pepin Complete New Techniques might be a better choice. I think it has most, if not all, of what's in here. And it does have the 700+ pages the publisher says, while the desserts book does not.

In fact, the Kindle Edition is supposed to have videos and be compatible with iPad, but none of the videos worked for me. Have to return the book, but it's sill a 5-star book!

This book is well organised and really informative. I especially like the teaching videos. First class! I have now bought some of his other books.

I really enjoy the recipes in this book. They range from simple to complex, and sometimes include suggestions for modification. Some are familiar to me and some are brand new, and all of them are making me want to bake in the summer. Though it is not the largest collection of dessert recipes, for the price of under $4, you can't go wrong.
What really makes this book stand out are the techniques and videos. I find them very helpful, and had no issues playing them on my Kindle Fire HD.

What could be better? Jacques includes enough technique to raise these desserts to a level above simply being lists of ingredients. Results are wonderful.
