Essential Pepin Desserts showcases more than 150 of Jacques Pépin’s top dessert recipes from his lifetime in food. The five chapters (Fruit Desserts; Puddings, Sweet Soufflés, and Crepes; Cakes, Cookies, and Candies; Tarts, Pies, and Pastries; and Frozen Desserts) display his many cooking styles, from homey French (Mémés Apple Tart), to haute cuisine (Coffee and Hazelnut Dacquoise), to fast food Jacques style (Warm Chocolate Soufflés), to fresh contemporary American dishes (Top-Crust Cherry Pie). In the accompanying videos, Pépin demonstrates ten essential techniques, including segmenting an orange, working with pie dough, and making chocolate “balloons.”
