Jacques Pépin Cooking My Way

Master chef Jacques Pépin shares his expert insights on cooking economically at home—how to save money, time, and effort—in Jacques Pépin Cooking My Way, with over 150 recipes.

All great chefs know not to waste ingredients, time, or effort—and for master chef Jacques Pépin, this means thinking efficiently about cooking, even at home. In Jacques Pépin Cooking My Way, the legendary cooking teacher offers expert insights on cooking economically at home, with techniques that save money, time, and cleanup effort, without sacrificing taste.

Shop for ingredients seasonally when they’re the most affordable, flavorful, and full of nutrition. Don’t overlook inexpensive cuts of meat and poultry. Use up as much of your ingredients up as possible, like saving your meat and vegetable trimmings for a stock, soup, or eventually, a sauce. Transform leftovers into an entirely new, pleasurable meal.

With more than 150 recipes, along with an illustrated menu for each season, Jacques Pépin Cooking My Way equips you with everything you need to cook the way Jacques Pépin does. Recipes include:

  • Garlicky Romaine with Croutons
  • Grits and Cheese Soufflé
  • Black-Eyed Peas and Kale Ragout
  • Skillet Butternut Squash
  • Zucchini-Tomato Gratin
  • Baked Salmon with Pesto Butter
  • Clam Fritters
  • Scaloppine of Turkey Breast in Mushroom Cream Sauce
  • Strawberries with Sour Cream and Brown Sugar

This beautifully revised, updated, and completely repackaged edition of Pépin Economique is an instant classic and a necessity for any home cook looking to make high-quality dishes with minimal time, effort, and money, now with full-color photographs and Jacques’ celebrated paintings.
