Synopses & Reviews
No longer a novice, Claudine Pepin is back in the kitchen with her famous father, Jacques, for the next course in her culinary education. Now that she has the basics under her belt, Claudine is taking on a fresh repertoire of recipes and skills in Encore with Claudine
. Jacques has written over 110 original recipes and designed twenty-six new menus to teach lessons in economy and resourcefulness, creativity and originality. Instead of walking through the supermarket and looking for inspiration, Jacques encourages Claudine and his readers to have a plan and recognize the possibilities in the fresh ingredients that are available. "My concern is to create something people can do at home," he says, "I know people wants something light and healthful, but something a bit new, too. These are the same concerns I have for my own family."
With a keen sense for the modern cook's concerns, Jacques has carefully developed menus for a variety of occasions. From simple everyday cooking, with dishes like Pita Pizzas, Stuffed Tomato Emilia, and Stew of Eggplant and Chinese Sausage, to meals for entertaining with recipes for Scallop and Potato Napoleons with Chive Sauce, Grilled Steak with Lemon-Thyme Butter, and Stuffed Butternut Squash, Jacques has covered all the bases. A foundation of useful technique and practical advice enhances every recipe, making Jacques Pepin's Kitchen: Encore with Claudine a cookbook to turn to again and again.
