Midwest Book Review | Oregon, WI USA | 01/09/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Adapted from the new PBS series, Fast Food My Way is a 2-disc DVD set featuring the talents of Jacques Pepin, who demonstrates 8 easy lessons for preparing simple, nutritious, and elegant cuisine, the preparation of which can easily mesh with fast-paced lifestyles. Each lesson is a full menu, for a total of 30 delicious dishes, from Zucchini & Tomato Salad, to Crab Cakes in Red Sauce, to Stuffed Scallops on Mushroom Rice, Apple Skillet Cake, and so much more. A mouth-watering delicious and easy-to-follow introduction to the simple and fun joy of healthy cooking. Approx. 4 hours, color.
Great- but need the whole season

"I am a JP junkie, 1st qualite. The CD set is as lovely as the show, and everyone knows what a great educator JP is- so why didnt they give us the whole season?

But the 8 episodes here are representative of his by the way style- for instance, in the sausage and potato packet in Episode 8, he shows you how to make your own quick mustard. Ditto for how to peel/chop and puree garlic. How to do risotto correctly, and how to identify what has made it go wrong for you in the past. all little secrets not to be known unless you see the show. These little tidbits are ladled heavily throughout the DVD set. In other episodes that I have on vhs (that I taped myself throughout the season) he talks about using a broken china dish to sharpen knives, - unfortunately I dont think this tidbit made it to the DVD.

The sound is a bit rough- on my set, Jacques' mic was not turned off when suddenly steam overwhelms it (producing a brushing sound on the audio). But he is so great, and the show is so helpful, with practical info I had to rate it a 5 star.

Get this DVD- you will NOT be disappointed!"

"Jacques Pepin's latest cooking DVD is simple elegance. From the the four item menu to it's presentation, Jacques clearly explains his techniques and how to prepare the food.
This is a well prepared, produced and entertaining DVD."

"Had assumed the complete season would be on the DVD. Was particularly interested in his lobster bisque preparation, but it was not included! Bummer. Why didn't they do the entire season!!!"
