Jacques Pépin Poulets & Légumes: My Favorite Chicken & Vegetable Recipes, by Jacques Pépin
From the world-renowned chef and celebrated artist, a must-have collection of everyday and elegant chicken and vegetable recipes
The legendary cooking teacher whom GQ calls ‘the most impactful living chef in America’ shares his favourite chicken and vegetable recipes from a half-century career spanning two continents.
Some, like ‘Poulet à la Crème’ and ‘Baker’s Wife Potatoes’, recall the country French dishes of his childhood, while ‘Chicken with Cognac Sauce’ and ‘Velvet Spinach’ come from his days in fine French restaurants. Most, though, are born in his contemporary Connecticut kitchen. All have that trademark Pépin touch: made with just a few steps but sublime enough for company.
Charmingly illustrated with Pépin’s paintings, this little compendium is perfect for revitalizing every cook’s repertoire.
