Jacques Pepin says "Serious, irreverent, funny, and informative".
Life lessons, comical misadventures; I'm ready to read his "The $64 Tomato" (and try my hand at a levain, and a poolish).
Baked a rosemary garlic focaccia loaf yesterday in honor of this book, although it's not growing my own wheat or spritzing the stove for steam. I get the author's desire for perfection, but also felt a desire for more simple enjoyable practical application of his methods in my own life. Focaccia it is!

This book left me hungry,yet satisfied. With a deep desire to spend some time of my own, maybe not at a baking class at The Ritz, but traveling/tasting & baking bread; and to France to a monastery for sure.
