It doesn't matter whether you can make the fanciest gourmet meal if you lack the skills to do something as basic as poach an egg. Once you acquire those basic skills, your culinary repertoire is limited only by your imagination. The Complete Pépin is an entire cooking course on DVD that features dozens of techniques that Jacques has sharpened over his decades in the kitchen.

I learned quite a bit. The flow is a bit choppy as each lesson is broken up to allow individual section viewing. Would have been nice to have a "play all" option to see whole related section together. That said, I would recommend this as a very good technique DVD. I hope Jacques makes some more DVDs.

I had the original Jacque Pepin series on VHS tape, but they got lost during a move some years back. When I saw that the series had been transcribed to DVD I happily ordered the set.

Sadly, it wasn't a straight transfer. To make it "new and improved" the recording was chopped into pieces so individual scenes could be accessed by menu selections, but in doing so Jacque's dialog is often interupted in mid paragraph and sometimes even in mid sentence.

The techniques are all there, and there's even some added material from his series with his daughter as well as PDF recipe files, but it just doesn't have the smooth flow and the "personality" of the original.
