“The Apprentice: My Life in the Kitchen”

Submitted by on March 10, 2018 – 8:10 amNo Comment

"The Apprentice: My Life in the Kitchen" by Jacques PépinThey don’t make ’em like they used to. That’s the message on almost every page of Jacques Pépin’s memoir, “The Apprentice: My Life in the Kitchen” (Waterville, Maine: Thorndike Press, 2003).

Today’s top chefs didn’t get their start at age 6, working in every kind of kitchen from a farm to a small town café to a top-end French haute cuisine restaurant. Along the way he (surprisingly) spent a decade cooking for Howard Johnson’s. Somehow Jacques Pépin makes it all sound like the most fabulous life in the world.

This is a great reminder of how the best learn how to do everything by, well, doing everything. Besides, it’s layered with a handful of Pépin’s own recipes including an Oatmeal Breakfast Soup with, no kidding, bacon and leeks.
