For a limited time we have bookplates signed by Jacques Pepin.
Few cooks make people as comfortable in the kitchen as the legendary Jacques Pepin, and this new collection of smart, uncomplicated recipes demonstrates why.
It certainly helps that Pepin is at ease in many cuisines, allowing him to adapt from all kinds of home cooking; French, Italian, Spanish, Russian, and American influences are easy to find. There's a chicken in vinegar with garlic and tomato sauce from Lyon, a salad of mozzarella and cilantro, a pair of cheesy calzones, and the likes of a raspberry gratin for dessert.
Pepin's own paintings appear on the cover and throughout the book, supplemented by photographs of many of finished dishes, taken by his longtime collaborator Tom Hopkins.
