Recipes for young chefs:"Any novice cook, not just a teenager, has much to gain as Mr. Pépin describes cooking with his 13-year-old granddaughter."--Florence Fabricant, The New York Times The James Beard Award-winning grand master 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, 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. "[The recipes are] perfect for parents who want to jump-start their child's gastronomic education."--Library Journal… (more)
