BHPL Book Group to Discuss the Apprentice by Jacques Pepin
The BHPL First Friday of the Month book group will discuss the Apprentice, my life in the kitchen (2003), the memoir of noted chef, cookbook author and TV personality Jacques Pepin, on Friday, March 7, 2008 at 10:30 AM in the Meeting Room of the library. Pepin recalls his rigorous chef's training in post-war France, his success in America and the people he met along the way. At the end of each chapter is a recipe and accompanying anecdote. Take a look at M. Pepin's website for recipes of course, but also for his paintings because he excels at art as well as cooking and writing. The book is illustrated with the author's charming line drawings.
