New. This follow-up to Fast Food My Way (the companion volume to Pépin's long-running PBS series of the same name) offers dozens of new recipes that are easy to prepare but elegant enough for company. The first chapter, "Minute Recipes, " is devoted to quick appetizers and hors d'oeuvres that often can be made from pantry staples (Pépin thinks of the supermarket as his prep cook). The recipes in the other chapters range from Bay Scallops in Mignonnette Sauce, a sort of French seviche, to Risotto with Broccoli Stems to old-fashioned Peach Melba. For most collections.

Jacques Pepin has been a pleasure to watch through the years and I don't know why it took me so long to get one of his recipe books. I read his autobiography and admire his resilience and love of family as well as his dedication to sharing his talents.
I love that he created the show 'Fast Food My Way' and am enjoying his recipes from the book, 'More Fast Food My Way'. It's great for times when you either don't want to spend a lot of time preparing a meal or simply don't have the time to do so.

Simple food, beautiful presentations
I love the book! I learned many shortcuts to prepare and present food.
I mean, who knew to peel the broccoli stems instead of throwing them away???
He has some amazing ways to use flour tortillas that save time and money for interesting pizzas and deserts.
Lovely book, it is now one of my favorites and I am a cook book junkie.
Publishers Weekly, 2008-05-19 Pepin's latest incarnation as the refined face of quick and easy home cooking has worked as a public TV show and in his last book. This follow-up wisely sticks with the same model, highlighting dishes that can be assembled with relatively little effort, assuming the cook has some experience, and that seldom use more than 10 or 15 ingredients, often fewer. The sequel has more international flair, as in the spongy Tibetan flatbread and chili con carne, but his simple preparations of French classics like frisee aux lardoons and pumpkin gratin shine brightest. The main addition is a section of prose-only "minute recipes"; mostly hors d'oeuvres, they vary in adherence to the minute label from some that are less recipes than concepts like seasoning olives or shaving radishes over baguette slices to those like the pine nut-covered baked cheese balls that take as long to prepare as the regular recipes. Pepin encourages using supermarkets "the right way," to buy both ingredients that will minimize prep time, such as canned beans, and a small number of the best ingredients available, whether fresh shellfish or fish fillets, good olives or olive oil. Fans of his last book, as well as any cooks looking for ideas on faster but still appealing dishes, will find much to enjoy. Color photos not seen by PW. (Oct.)
