Cooks in a hurry, take heart! Memorable dishes are only moments away with Jacques Pépin’s stunning new cookbook. The most celebrated chef in the world — the man who taught millions of Americans how to cook — applies his skills to the food he loves best: simple, special meals that can be prepared quickly. Fast food Jacques’s way is as effortless as seasoning a salmon with fresh herbs and nutty bread crumbs and cooking it right on the serving platter in a low oven. And it doesn’t get any easier than his Instant Beef Tenderloin Stew, quickly sautéed steak combined with an array of colorful vegetables — brighter, fresher, and far faster than traditional versions. Pumpkin Soup with Toasted Walnuts, Quick Cassoulet, and Caramelized Peaches rely on canned goods (what Jacques calls “treasures in the pantry”) and take just moments to make.
With Jacques Pépin Fast Food My Way, even a succulent roast can be on the table in thirty minutes. Every dish in this beautifully photographed cookbook is special enough to serve to company.
With no tricks, no gimmicks, and no compromises in flavor or appearance, just honest techniques and the lessons of a lifetime of experience, Jacques Pépin Fast Food My Way proves that the best food is the simplest.
