French chef Jacques Pepin is one of the twentieth century’s most recognizable and celebrated culinary masters. In France, he was the personal chef to French President Charles de Gaulle. When he moved to the US, he led an illustrious career at many of the finest French restaurants in New York. He has won dozens of James Beard Foundation Awards. He is a French Chevalier and the recipient of the Légion d’honneur, France’s highest honor. He was also a close friend of Julia Child. Together they won an Emmy for their joint television broadcast, Julia and Jacques Cooking at Home. In Cuisine Economique, Pepin provides a spectacular array of affordable recipes grouped together by the seasons. Subtitled “Recipes that Turn Penny-Pinching into a Delicious Experience,” it is a rare culinary contribution framed around a budget rather than a culture or food group. It is one of Pepin’s greatest cookbooks.
