La cuisine rapide, encore
Mais oui, bien sr, he's done it again! Jacques Pépin never disappoints as a cook, teacher and perpetrator of fabulous cookbooks. Jacques Pépin More Fast Food My Way, his second foray into the world of the culinary quick fix, is as good as his first. So good, that though you may start using it when time is prime, you'll return again and again for its practical, innovative ideas. Jacques can switch from thinking like a celebrity chef to thinking like a guy on his way home who has to get dinner ready ASAP. In that mode, he uses the supermarket as his sous-chef, something we all can learn to do. He buys good-quality prepared, canned and partially prepped food and with a few additions creates dishes that are great for both every day and entertaining. Cured Salmon Morsels, an excellent appetizer, take only 10 minutes, and pieces of rotisserie chicken topped with a persillade (quickly sautéed garlic, shallots and chopped parsley) then set on simply dressed pre-washed Boston lettuce make a fine entree. Hearty Vegetable Bean Soup, using the veggies you have on hand and a can of cannellini beans, can be on the table in little more than half an hour and mussels cooked in Bloody Mary mix nestled in rice pilaf will wow your guests. Life in the fast lane has never tasted better.
