There are many Jacques Pepin books to love, this is just one that is, well, essential. He is a master of uncomplicating a recipe while maintaining maximum flavor. There are cooking and baking techniques simplified with his efficient but warm style. Hint: Chocolate Mint Trufflettes are especially easy and delicious!
