Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From “a great teacher and truly a master technician” (Julia Child), a new cookbook full of faster-than-ever food, including dozens of elegant “minute” recipes.

Jacques Pépin Fast Food My Way was an immediate sensation, captivating cooks and critics, who called it “fabulous,” “chic,” and “elegant.” Now America's first and most enduring celebrity chef does himself one better, with recipes that are faster, fresher, and easier than ever. Only Jacques could have come up with dishes so innovative and uncomplicated.

“Minute recipes”: Nearly no-cook recipes fit for company: Cured Salmon Morsels, Glazed Sausage Bits

Smashing appetizers: Scallop Pancakes, zipped together in a blender (10 minutes)

Almost instant soups: Creamy Leek and Mushroom Soup (7 minutes)

Fast, festive dinners: Stuffed Pork Fillet on Grape Tomatoes (18 minutes)

Stunning desserts: Mini Almond Cakes in Raspberry Sauce (15 minutes)

Review:

"Pépin's latest incarnation as the refined face of quick and easy home cooking has worked as a public TV show and in his last book. This follow-up wisely sticks with the same model, highlighting dishes that can be assembled with relatively little effort, assuming the cook has some experience, and that seldom use more than 10 or 15 ingredients, often fewer. The sequel has more international flair, as in the spongy Tibetan flatbread and chili con carne, but his simple preparations of French classics like frise aux lardoons and pumpkin gratin shine brightest. The main addition is a section of prose-only 'minute recipes'; mostly hors d'oeuvres, they vary in adherence to the minute label from some that are less recipes than concepts like seasoning olives or shaving radishes over baguette slices to those like the pine nut — covered baked cheese balls that take as long to prepare as the regular recipes. Pépin encourages using supermarkets 'the right way,' to buy both ingredients that will minimize prep time, such as canned beans, and a small number of the best ingredients available, whether fresh shellfish or fish fillets, good olives or olive oil. Fans of his last book, as well as any cooks looking for ideas on faster but still appealing dishes, will find much to enjoy. Color photos not seen by PW."

Review:

"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." School Library Journal

My DVR is filled with episodes of Jacques Pepin's More Fast Food My Way. He is easy to follow and everything is yummy. So much better to have 'hard copy' in hand since I know I won't ever get around to writing down the recipes from the TV.
