Overview

Low on drudgery, high on joie de vivre, Jacques Pepin's Table showcases Pepin's inimitable cooking and teaching style, presenting more than three hundred recipes from all three seasons of the popular Today's Gourmet series, along with complete menu and wine suggestions, and more than a hundred instructional tips and techniques on everything from butterflying chicken breasts or peeling asparagus to freezing and then baking a souffle. A nutritional analysis is provided for each dish, as are comments on the nutritional value of various ingredients. Gorgeous food photography and hundreds of Pepin's own delightful drawings are interspersed. From Corn Polenta with Mushroom Ragout to White Peach and Walnut Tart, Salmon in Savory Broth to Farmer Bread, these recipes epitomize Pepin's trademark attention to lower-calorie, health-minded, easy-to-prepare cuisine that includes more fiber, less saturated fat, lean meats, and vegetables cooked to preserve their vitamins and nutrients. Informed throughout by Pepin's irresistible combination of simple sophistication and warm conviviality, Jacques Pepin's Table is an indispensable compendium of common sense and inspiration for both everyday family meals and special occasion entertaining.
