This follow-up to Fast Food My Way (the companion volume to Pépin's long-running PBS series of the same name) offers dozens of new recipes that are easy to prepare but elegant enough for company. The first chapter, "Minute Recipes," is devoted to quick appetizers and hors d'oeuvres that often can be made from pantry staples (Pépin thinks of the supermarket as his prep cook). The recipes in the other chapters range from Bay Scallops in Mignonnette Sauce, a sort of French seviche, to Risotto with Broccoli Stems to old-fashioned Peach Melba. For most collections.
