I ♥ Cooking Club is putting Jacques Pepin in the spotlight this week. As one of our more popular featured chefs in the series, I was delighted to pull out some of his recipes and select one for linking up.
Used to be when my husband was out of town I would eat eggplant. (That's right, I live on the wild side!)
It wasn't one of his favorites. I grew up with eggplant heavily featured in the form of gratins, eggplant and cheese hoagies, fried eggplant and eggplant in lasagna....so I would crave it now and then. Doug has changed his mind about eggplant and we do, on occasion, have it as a Parmesan dish or in ratatouille.
Anyway, I wanted eggplant again and it just so happened to coincide with one of his out-of-town trips so.......here is the Pepin recipe I made.
It doesn't look like the photo in his cookbook at all. It's still recognizable as an eggplant dish, I think, don't you think so? It was good and I had it for my main meal. This wasn't all that recently but when I prepared it and was surfing around at I ♥ Cooking Club I saw Pepin was featured this week.
The recipe is from his book Heart and Soul in the Kitchen, details HERE.
I am very fortunate to have a good library available to me. I can check out the latest books and browse before I decide to buy a book. This one looks good, lots of nice stories in it and of course, lots of wonderful recipes.
Check out I ♥ Cooking Club this week and see what everyone else brought to the party.
