A trusted television personality, accomplished cook, seasoned teacher, and dedicated mom, Claudine has spent her entire life learning from and cooking alongside the most renowned chefs in the world. Complete with countless personal stories, beautiful illustrations by her father and her daughter, and timeless recipes developed with her husband, Let's Cook French is an absolute delight for the whole family and a source of inspiration for aspiring chefs of all ages. Bravo!" - Gail Simmons, TV host and author of Talking With My Mouth Full"If there's one thing I've learned from the French, it's that good cooking is not an end in itself. Rather, it's the crucial thing that brings the family together for a meal at the end of every day - and nothing's more important than that. Claudine Pepin, Jacques's daughter, was schooled in this lesson from birth. Now she is paying it forward. Simply but clearly written, and vivid with illustrations that recall the "Madeleine" books, "Let's Cook French" is seductive. If anyone can tempt kids away from nuggets and pizza, into the kitchen, and on to the dinner table, it's Claudine." - Sara Moulton of Sara's Weeknight Meals"My dear friends, Claudine and her father Jacques Pépin, have taught America to love French cooking. Now, with this very special book, these two amazing storytellers have shared their passion for family, fun and good food with a new generation of cooks.

Charming and useful, with accessible recipes and lovely illustrations. My daughter has enjoyed it as much as I have, and I love that the facing pages are French and English equivalents so we can explore a bit of French language together as we cook. Bien fait!

What a sweet delicious and touching book! I loved reading the history behind some of the recipes and about growing up eating people food not kid food. I agree wholeheartedly with much of what Claudine says, like seasons should be taken into consideration when cooking main dishes, “No one wants to eat a heavy and hot meal when it’s hot outside.” French and English, a great idea and I enjoyed the colorful illustrations. Love the cauliflower souffle and many of the other recipes, they are sure to become favorites at our house. I need to order a second book, one to use, one to keep.

There isn't anything like this book on the market. Although it is targeted to children, the recipes are engaging for all ages and will stimulate children to not only cook, but to eat their creations. They may even learn some French along the way. The book is so well thought out, beautiful quality, lovely illustrations by Jacques (and Claudine's daughter Shorey too). It's a book that is meant to last and inspire for years. So, stop watching cooking shows and spend time in the kitchen with your children and this lovely book.

Totally authentic.....a good book in hand...for children to see how language works in both directions for the same product.Nicely produced, and a nice gift for a developing interest in cooking/food skills.

Love, love this book. I am always looking for different recipes my family will like, but also need to keep simple due to limited time in my busy life. This book has many unique recipes and my family loves the meals I have created so far from this book. Also enjoy the personality of the author that appears before each recipe!!!

I love this cookbook. It is great for kids, but I find it amazing as an adult. It has recipes in English, and then in French. I also love how there is the English word for say "cheese" and then the French pronunciation as well. This is a fun cookbook with some great recipes. I cannot wait to try them all out! Highly recommended for all ages.

Perfect for all ages, especially for those who are learning French. The recipes look like they will be fun to make and not too complicated. The illustrations are fantastic. The cookbook arrived on time and in beautiful NEW condition. I would order from this vendor again.

I bought this book for my 3 boys as an Easter gift. One of the boys, age 11, (not the one I originally thought would take the most interest in this book) has now decided he may want to pursue a career as a chef and have his own restaurant. He made the creme brule (with minimal help from me) and it was fantastic! Then on his own went on to make crepes and sables out of this book. I didn't help him with either of those recipes. They are easily written for a young chef to follow and cook on his own. I would definitely recommend this book to others who have young people in their lives interested in French cooking. I am even planning to make some of the recipes from this book for our family.
