What a treat that must have been. The Apprentice is a wonderful book. Pepin isn't always understood or appreciated, I fear, and I'm thrilled to hear there's a sequel on the way.


I'm so glad you were able to see him. He's a darling man, and always a charmer!


I really enjoyed Julia Child's book with her nephew, I'll be going for Pepin's The Apprentice: My Life in the Kitchen. It is so refreshing when "famous" people turn out to be real and generous.

A Masters in French lit and painting and a cooking guru to boot? I'm not sure if I should be feeling like an inadequate underachiever, or completely inspired by all the things I might still do.


Those were my impressions when I read the book; how enthusiastic he is about the US and our willingness to try new things in the kitchen over here, and all his achievements, expecially when you consider what he went through after that horrible auto accident when they thought he'd never walk again. What a wonderful guy!
