From School Library Journal
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.

But the Washington Post printed a few recipes. They made sense. I tried one and it was good. It was fast, simple, and delicious. I tried another, and so was it. I went to Borders and poked around the book and there were some clever, simple, and imaginative combinations of ingredients.
I bought it from Amazon and have cooked about 10 recipes and they have all been winners. I've made a few of them twice, but I'm always tempted to try something new. My family thinks I'm a better cook, and I've gotten the kids to eat foods they didn't think they would like -- kale, brocollini, green peas, anchovies.
I've also watched some of the TV shows which the book is based on, and while the shows aren't necessary to cook the recipes, they do provide additional perspectives and insights. They also present Jacques Pepin, and now I can see why the 'my way' isn't pompous (or Pompidou) but is useful information. Having read the book and seen the man, I'm ready for more cooking his way.
My new cookbooks often get shelved after a few recipes, but I'm motivated to work my way through this one. I'm eating well and making every day a little bit special without spending any more time or money. When I run out of an ingredient the recipes tolerate substitutions well. This is my kind of cookbook.
Several weeks later: still going strong. Tonight's dinner was baked chicken with mustard crust and for dessert, pears bonne femme. It was all simple to make and omigosh amazing. I don't think I've ever had so much benefit from one book. It's making me into a better cook and I can't recommend it highly enough.
Three years later: still a favorite.
I was impressed with the apparent ease of food preparation as well as some of the more unusual food combinations he’d come up with on this show. This cookbook is mentioned at the end of those episodes so I had to give it a try (so much easier than continually pausing the DVR to take notes! LOL).
With this book, Pépin brings simple, easy gourmet food to the kitchens of cooks who may be short on time or cooking experience. When he says “fast food” he’s most definitely not talking about the unhealthy junk food so prevalent today. These are fast, mostly healthy recipes that those with an educated palate, as well as young children, will enjoy. In fact, I think this is a great book to get kids interested in cooking.
I’ve cooked several recipes from this book without a single failure or disappointment. My husband loves every dish I’ve made so far. I’m definitely going to purchase the first book if this series too!
