Description: In this companion volume to his celebrated television series, Jacques Pepin, world-renowned chef and author of the bestselling La Technique and La Methode, brings the simple, economical, delicious everyday food of France to your table. In Everyday Cooking with Jacques Pepin, the master French chef who put "technique" into the vocabulary of good cooks everywhere shows you:
How to create economical meals
- Using the most basic, inexpensive staples that are always on hand; the less expensive types of meat such as breast of lamb, chicken livers, and sausages; and plenty of vegetables and pasta, Jacques Pepin provides menus for spectacularly appealing meals that will feed a family on pennies while thoroughly pleasing the palate.
How to transform leftovers into inspired meals
- Whether it's pasta shells, cold chicken, or leftover beef stew, you'll learn how to use them to create new entrees as fresh and distinctive as the originals. Simple ingredients such as the peels from the morning's orange juice can be turned into a delicious confection, or a few pieces of fruit can become an easy, festive dessert.
How to become a "recipeless" cook
- Jacques Pepin helps you understand, as no other cooking teacher can, the hows and whys -- when to use a thick white sauce, when to use a thinner one; how preparation affects the potency of garlic; when it's better to use water than stock, or lard than butter; how to bake leftovers into a crusty gratin. Each recipe provides a lesson which teaches principles applicable to every dish you make. You'll learn to look at familiar ingredients in new ways, so that a quick glance at your pantry shelves or refrigerator will inspire dozens of wonderful ideas for truly gratifying meals.
