If you didn’t already wish you’d been born in a village near Lyon, France, where you and your brothers could fry up fresh-caught fish on the banks of a bubbling brook before dashing home to help your mother peel carrots in your family’s restaurant, Jacques Pépin is going to change that. The beloved chef has penned a lively, amusing tale of an entirely food-centric life, taking us along as he learns and cooks his way through kitchens in Lyon, Paris, and New York. Whether he’s working under Pierre Franey or Howard Johnson, Pépin’s memoir shows his honest, earnest love and undying curiosity for all aspects of food and eating. Each chapter ends with a recipe, but for a peek at Pépin’s simple magic, check out his recipes for Soft Caramels, Steak au Poivre, and Oysters Rockefeller.
