"There has never been anything like it anywhere."
"Concise. Informative. Indispensible."—Anthony Bourdain
"Pépin asks the reader to not treat this as a book, treat it as an
apprenticeship. I took that to heart, and, indirectly, Jacques Pépin
became my mentor through these techniques."—Tom Colicchio
