  1. Written along with a PBS series, this book captures Julia and Jacque s personalities, their food sensibilities, their commonalities and differences The recipes are fabulous and the techniques taught trustworthy One of my favorite go toos Just savor the chapter on burgers Or, Roast Chicken, my favorite entree

  2. This is my most treasured cookbook I loved Julia and Jacques together on TV and I love how they collaborated on this cookbook.

  3. Well since it will probably be forever before I actually sit down and read her most famous books Mastering the Art of French Cooking, and I actually saw some of the episodes of this show on PBS in the 1990s, I figured this would be a good book to read I liked how they set up the recipes with over 300 pictures, and then the commentary by Julia and Jacques on the sides in different colors Now I don t necessarily want to know how to debone and section a fish or separate cuts of beef pork, it is nic [...]

  4. I really need to buy this book.Instead, I have borrowed it from the library 7 times, and when I went to renew it today, someone else has put a hold on it how rude Don t they know I m still using it lol I adore and idolize both of these chefs their talent is straight forward and not complex just for confusion I know if there is a finicky step in a recipe, there is a reason, though I ll check J Pepin s to see if he agrees as his recipes are often simpler If anyone wants to get me a Christmas birth [...]

  5. A manageable introduction than Mastering the Art of French Cooking, this captures Julia s voice brilliantly The push and pull as well as camaraderie between her and Jaques makes for interesting reading It s especially interesting to see this dynamic exposed after reading Provence 1970 Julia obviously found better ways to collaborate if not always agree after her partnership with Beck dissolved and I love the agree to disagree flavor of the writing here.

  6. I got this out of the library when I was watching the PBS series the cookbook is a companion to and while these two really elderly cooks who were champions in their time are marvelous to watch cook both because they both clearly know their way around the kitchen, and because they are clearly fond of each other, but the cooking is just not my style heavy use of butter and cream, very traditional preparation, and I already have 5 Julia Child cookbooks that I can go to for that sort of food.

  7. As a long time devotee of PBS cooking shows, I thought this book was delightful The back and forth between Julia and Jacques that makes their show so interesting is well represented with numerous sidebars and notes from each chef Both parties provide their own takes on recipes and ingredients, which adds both information and depth, so readers can mix and match to their heart s content They may even have convinced me to try souffle

  8. These are meals for special occaisons The ingredients are expensive and the recipes are involved and time consuming The most memorable recipe I ve made so far is the poached pears, which are delicious I m sure you can find an easier recipe for poached pears, but that recipe wouldn t be chock full of pictures of my two favorite chefs then, would it

  9. Four stars instead of five, but only because there isn t anything distinctive about the recipes on their own The conversation between these two legends is worth buying and keeping this cookbook, sans recipes There is so much here skills and techniques, food history and reflections on classics and new classics, and great, solid recipes with variations to boot.

  10. Good luck getting your hands on this book, which was put out in conjunction with JJ s tv show of the same name, apparently in a small print run I ve been trying to get a used copy at a reasonable price for months Big, beautiful format, with advice on each recipe from each chef The tv show is also charming, with Jacques gamely being the smiling perfect gentleman, no matter what Julia says

  11. Julia and Jacques present their variations side by side on some classics Julia has a great technique for garlic mashed potatoes and their recipe for Creme Anglaise is excellent if you have the courage to make it The chocolate creme chantilly roulade is excellent and very impressive for any formal get together.

  12. So much great information here Julia and Jacques are the two chefs that I grew up watching, learning from, and admiring This cookbook not only gives you all the techniques, tip and tools you need to create beautiful French dishes with ease But, bonus you not only get one chefs tips you get two A wonderful addition to you cookbook library

  13. The book is laid out with pairs of commentary on facing pages by the two authors Fewer recipes and less content than I expected, but a lovely idea for a book by two friends If I made a book like this with my other half, his would contain a list of phone numbers for take out joints greasy thai, carbohydrate bomb pizza, and maybe some orange smudges from the cheese doodles gone astray.

  14. Contains the most wonderful recipe for Cauliflower au Gratin, but every recipe in the book sounds delicious What could you want than Julia Child and Jacques Pepin cooking together Of course, it was also a TV series on PBS.

  15. Julia and Jacques were adorable together, respectful of each other s differences, always professional but cordial This is a companion book to the PBS series of their cooking shows Great basic manual with lovely little anecdotes sprinkled throughout

  16. Meh This was just, not good If you want good Julia Child this is NOT the place to look for it Just no Skip this book and look to her older stuff Some of her newer cookbooks were experimental and some of them fell flat Like this one did.

  17. This book taught me many things, as did their tv shows on Channel 13 for so many years But it was the simplest lesson that has been the most rewarding how to cook an egg Properly Makes all the difference in the world.

  18. An absolute must for fans of Julia and or Jacques They worked so well together and this book and its accompanying PBS series is a testament to their friendship and their dedication to teaching and making cooking something fun.

  19. I like the way recipes are presented with the left column devoted to Julia and her techniques and opinions and the other side of the spread to Jacques There s a great deal of insight hear, lots of great tips, good recipes and some personality.

  20. This is a great how to and a fun way to explore some variations in technique Pepin and Child combos have been a long time favorite.Did not even flip through the last half of the book which explores meats, recipes and techniques for meats Complete with step by photos Ick.

  21. Great cookbook I love how it is set up with commentary from both Jacques and Julia Plus, the food seems really classic without some of the unusual recipes found in Julia s Mastering the Art of French Cooking Aspics, anyone This is my go to cookbook for b uf bourguignon.

  22. I ve had this one for years and have never made anything from it it s just classic and fun to read on occasion.

  23. The counterpoint between Jacques and Julia echoes their onscreen presence They were are wonderful together and this cookbook is rock solid.

  24. I loved the PBS series this book is based on This is a great read I especially enjoy reading about their differing techniques.

  25. I used to love watching the two of them on TV, and I am truly enjoying this cookbook I want to make so many of the recipes
