Legendary French chef and cooking teacher Jacques Pépin has devoted his latest cookbook to the everyday food he cooks at home. The emphasis is on good taste with minimal fuss. Most of the food leans French—think Gougères with Cheese and Tomato Tatin, but you'll also find Grilled Chicken Tenders with Chimichurri and Chirashi Sushi. And those gorgeous paintings sprinkled throughout the book? Those are by Pépin, too.
