Description: Jacques Pepin, former chef to three French presidents, veteran of the famed Plaza Athenee in Paris and Le Pavilion in New York, teacher and columnist, has written the unrivaled practical guide to the fundamental techniques of cooking. 

The Jacques Pepin La Technique cookbook is a beautifully designed and profusely illustrated guide to the simple but indispensable secrets which make the difference between the true chef and the amateur. More than 150 basic techniques are illustrated step by step with more than 1500 photographs. The contents of La Technique are comprehensive and elegant in their simplicity; superb recipes, tested and refined by Pepin over the years, are included whenever he wants to emphasize an especially essential skill or procedure; cross-referencing throughout is extensive. Above all, this book has been designed to be used. 

"It is a cooking course between covers, and anyone who can't master a technique from these pages should probably not be allowed to handle sharp knives." -- Mimi Sheraton, food critic of The New York Times
