Review

...watching this grand chef whip up elegant fast food his way is exciting, and it s perfect for people with a FedEx-lifestyle. Recommended. Three Stars. --Video Librarian

The editors of Southwest Airlines inflight magazine Spirit have voted Jacques Pepin the Best Television Chef from a Top Ten list which included Emeril Lagasse, G. Garvin, Lidia Bastianinch, Wolfgang Puck, Tina Nordstrom, Mario Batali, Alton Brown, Ming Tsai and Rachael Ray. Spirit said His french-inspired recipes are always solid, and he s one of the best technique teachers on television. There s something to be said for watching a cooking demonstration versus reading a recipe in a book. For one thing, we live in the television/computer world and most of us are used to learning from watching, not from reading. Plus, when demonstrating a dish, a chef will often share tips that would probably never make it into a cookbook...Three volumes of Jacques Pépin Fast Food My Way demonstrates how to create deliciously elegant meals in minutes. --American Fitness Magazine

I have to admit I had never heard of Jacques Pépin before reviewing this DVD, but he s a dab hand at preparing and presenting his meals with a lot of energy and personality. I never really had a passion for cooking, but watching these lessons and trying out one myself turned out to be a whole lot of fun. As a matter of fact, I m gearing up right now to go to the store and get the ingredients for my next menu. Bon appétit! --DVDVerdict.com

I am a JP junkie, 1st qualite. The CD set is as lovely as the show, and everyone knows what a great educator JP is- so why didnt they give us the whole season?

But the 8 episodes here are representative of his by the way style- for instance, in the sausage and potato packet in Episode 8, he shows you how to make your own quick mustard. Ditto for how to peel/chop and puree garlic. How to do risotto correctly, and how to identify what has made it go wrong for you in the past. all little secrets not to be known unless you see the show. These little tidbits are ladled heavily throughout the DVD set. In other episodes that I have on vhs (that I taped myself throughout the season) he talks about using a broken china dish to sharpen knives, - unfortunately I dont think this tidbit made it to the DVD.

The sound is a bit rough- on my set, Jacques' mic was not turned off when suddenly steam overwhelms it (producing a brushing sound on the audio). But he is so great, and the show is so helpful, with practical info I had to rate it a 5 star.

Get this DVD- you will NOT be disappointed!

First of all, the full season of this terrific program is NOT included on these DVDs. If you're okay with that (as I was) then keep reading.

Jacques Pépin, (along with the late Julia Child), has been in the cooking show business since before the producers of The Food Network were out of their diapers. He's also been cooking since he was a child while his father served in the World War Two French Resistance while his lovely mother operated one restaurant after another, each becoming bigger and better than the previous one.

Jacques enhanced his knowledge and his career by working in the best of European restaurants and subsequently coming to America where he turned down the Kennedys for the head chef's job at The White House to go to work for Howard Johnson. You can read all the details in: The Apprentice: My Life in the Kitchen.

This master chef's most recent series (I'm also including Jacques Pepin: More Fast Food My Way in that statement) is the best I've ever seen and I've been cooking and watching cooking shows my entire life. From my view, the only other programs which come close were The Frugal Gourmet's [Jeff Smith] PBS show and also the more recently produced programs featuring Julia Child, some of which include Jacques Pépin.

In the series under review here, you get two discs (200 minutes total time) which include eight lessons (programs) -- there are usually four dishes featured during each 1/2-hour program. In addition to the recipes themselves Jacques focuses quite a lot on culinary techniques and table presentation.

Had assumed the complete season would be on the DVD. Was particularly interested in his lobster bisque preparation, but it was not included! Bummer. Why didn't they do the entire season!!!

Jacques Pepin's latest cooking DVD is simple elegance. From the the four item menu to it's presentation, Jacques clearly explains his techniques and how to prepare the food.

This is a well prepared, produced and entertaining DVD.
