I was surprised by how much I like this cookbook. I expected it to be interesting, but didn't expect it to be as accessible for the ordinary cook. Sure there are some "exotic" recipes, but there are many down-to-earth ones, too. Also, if you have an interest in recipes for wild game you might want to check out Essential Pepin. Even if you don't end up trying any of the recipes, the book makes a great read for a foodie.

What a great cookbook! Jacques not only cooks and writes, he does the quirky little drawings throughout the book. Who knew he worked for the home of fried clam strips, Howard Johnson's? Directions are easy to follow and he gives explanations when there is some difficulty involved. Cooking a smoked ham in hot water and then baking it the next day caught my attention and I'm looking forward to trying it. He even has recipes for sausages and salami! Even if you don't cook a lot, this is a good read.

Over 700 recipes by a classic chef is reason enough to buy this book, but it's the generous number of personal comments Pepin includes with the recipes that make it plain these are the foods Jacques Pepin has eaten and cooked all his life. It's fun to read; I spent a couple of hours reading the egg recipes and discussing them with friends. I haven't even tried the DVD yet, and this is already my favorite cookbook.

I love Jacque Pepin's shows, but this book has little to offer that feels like Jacque Pepin. 700 recipes--way too many. Quantity, not quality. And speaking of quality, the book has NONE. It is CHEAP. The cover is just formed from paper, the pages are cheap paper (probablyi recylced material). There are NO color plates. Nothing. I paid $4 for it, plusabout $6 for shipping. I got what I paid for. Maybe the recipes will be good.

Love Jacque Pepin, All his cookbooks are great, who better to to help you with good cooking than a man who worked with Julia Child and was the chef for a French president, Charles De Gaulle.
