Customer Reviews:

  • fantastic for someone who loves flavorful food and busy career
    As a very busy professional woman - time is a premium commodity - so cooking has in the past not been a top priority. I love excellent tasting French and Italian food and for years, like many of us, simply gave up cooking most evenings because of the time required to do the shopping, prepping and then cooking and cleaning. Yikes - it was simply more cost effective to go to restaurants - even if it meant taking it home and eating it. As many of us start to learn more about nutrition and the incredible importance of organic vegetables, fruit and meat - if we want longevity and health - we naturally realize we need to make a time investment in preparing good, healthy food. So then came how to do it without getting frustrated about the time and making sure we truly enjoy our sense of taste. As someone who has travelled so much in Europe the bar is high. So imagine my delight when I found Jacque Pepin's book - Fast Food My Way - I could not get enough - so thrilled now to have this new cook book as well. I have already hosted multiple dinner parties with real "foodies" who could not believe how easy and delicious everything tasted. So, I have probably been a major cookbook distribution channel for Jacque! I also bought the accompanying DVD's - why Because as a business person, you certainly get the importance of not just taste but presentation - so watching his preparation and presentation really made a giant difference in both my skill and confidence. On my last business trip, my airplane seatmate delivered a very quirky expression when he saw me in my biz suit - switching from updating an Excel spreadsheet to watching a DVD on how to cut and prepare smoked salmon...pretty funny. "Cooking dinner for an important client..." was my response. He smiled and nodded in sympathetic understanding. If you like butternut squash - try the soup - its is a fantastic, delicious and actually cost effective starter - as many are looking to cut costs but still want to entertain - you dont have to cut taste or quality or feel exhausted at the end of the day. Get these books and you will feel and look like a star chef! Strongly suggest practicing on dishes beffore you serve them to company however.......more info

  • Great way to eat better
    Not having seen the TV programs I bought the book based on some of Jacques Pepins prior work. The format and the menu suggestions are great!

    The idea of using the supermarket as your prep cook is wonderful....more info
  • I think like this
    Jacques is my absolute favorite american chef. His recipes, with the shadows of France and Italy, entice me the way few other chefs do.

    This book is beyond good, it's a continual declaration of Jacques' dedication to his art. His production quality is high, like always, and when you sit back and *read* the book, well, it hits the mark.

    Which mark? How to make great food on a Tuesday night, in no time at all. ...more info
  • A winner
    Excellent book. I already have the first one and this one is just as good....more info
  • Disappointed
    The book was a disappointment and I returned it. I had listened to an interview on the radio and it sounded good--even an entire chapter on eggs. That sounded good. Easy to fix recipes, and quickly done, or so I was led to believe. The book was full of expensive pictures, which unfortunately, took up most of it. The chapter on eggs had three--three total!--recipes in it. It was mostly filled with pictures of the eggs. That was his idea of a chapter. And not one of them was quick and easy. The rest of the book was similar in content, the largest chapter being on desserts. Not what I had in mind. I am sure the recipes are all good, but I wanted something that was a lot more simple, which he advertised this to be....more info
  • I love it
    I have marked the recipes that I saw on his TV program, Will take with me to my summer house and cook away ! ! !...more info
  • Jacques is the MAN!
    BY FAR my favorite cookbook of ALL TIME! The unique, original dishes are ALWAYS a big hit at family gatherings and an absolute cinch to prepare. Guys, if you're looking to impress that special lady with food that tastes like you spent hours in the kitchen... This is the book for you! There's a good reason that Jacques was the head chef at the Russian Tea Room for many years and this book proves it. Be sure to check out the Menus in the back of the book for complete meals that are sure to please....more info
