Curious about your opinions of the following:

“LA Methode” (out of print)
“LA Technique” (out of print)

(and any others by Jacques Pépin you have an opinion of)

Yeah, I have viewed these two books also at the local library. What interested me in these books was the techniques he explored and explained. Another book of his that I have is called "The Art of Cooking" Volume I (Looking for Vol. II, but cant seem to find) a great book also. Also he has a 5 volume series of video tapes in which he explains different preparation and cooking Techniques, I enjoy watching what he teaches.

I bought La Technique in 1976 when it first came out. The next year I went to J&W I believe in part because of Pepins book.
I always loved what he said in this book
To the Chefs.
Who sweat to create friendliness and cordiality among men. Although it is a little outdated there are some things that remain the same. How to french a chicken.how to bone out a leg of veal,how to french a lamb rack. That is why it is titled La Technique. Nicko Have you tried sourcing through your local Library?

La Technique is listed for sale at www.alibris.com but before you get your hopes up the price is -- are you sitting down? -- $127. Softcover. You can pick up the 2-volume The Art of Cooking for the low low price of $1,188 (cough cough).

Although if you were a pro it's cheaper than culinary school.
