Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Cottage cheese pancakes with blueberries

    • Rinshin on November 26, 2017

      Similar in texture and shape to Swedish pancakes. Simple to make with small amount of sour cream and cottage cheese. A little tangy and eggy which was nice.

  • Seafood bread

    • Rinshin on November 18, 2017

      I really wanted to like this, but I thought there was very little taste to this and felt like I was eating toasted ciabatta with lightly dressed seafood on top. Although I thought the amount of garlic, butter and olive oil would be enough, it was bland. Needed something else ie perhaps vinegar, citrus, mayo, hot sauce. I don't know, but this did not come through for me. I like the concept of using whole bread to make stuffed bread but this needs more taste from the sauce. My husband who has very mild palate liked it fine though.

Publishers Text

The grand master of cooking has a new apprentice in the kitchen: his granddaughter.

Jacques Pépin is one of the nation’s most famous cooking teachers, renowned for his knife skills. Ever since she was very young, his granddaughter, Shorey, has loved “helping” him in the kitchen. Now that she is twelve, Jacques gives his charismatic pupil a short course on preparing “food that is plain, but elegant, and more than anything, fun.” In the process, he proves himself as inspiring to her as he is to the country’s greatest chefs.

Curly hot dogs, spinach with croutons, sushi salmon cakes, skillet bread and homemade butter, raspberry cake: These recipes will become irresistible new classics for kids. Along the way, Jacques imparts lessons in kitchen etiquette, from how to set a table to how to fold a napkin properly—even how to load a dishwasher. And perhaps the most important lesson of all: that the best meals are the ones shared at home with family.
