"The Complete Pepin" DVDs

A dial-up connection precludes my watching online videos, but I have Netflix and just recently discovered the cooking and craft DVDs are included in the Special Interest genre. The Complete Pepin came out in 2006 but judging by his appearance, must have been filmed at least 15 years ago. I have watched the first disc so far, and the other one is en route. The segments are brief, no-nonsense close-ups of prep techniques with just a few recipes. The highlight is the poultry section. He relies more on pulling the raw sections apart than by cutting - it is fast, effective, and a wonder to behold. Even for home cooks with years of experience, there's something to be learned, and I would especially recommend this set to those who are just beginning to cook seriously.
