To the following:
Asked by The New York Times to dream up a meal with products from a Jack’s 99-Cent Store, Mr. Ripert and his pastry chef, Michael Laiskonis, did not stop at the requested three courses.
Except for some staples (onions, garlic, oil, butter, flour, eggs) Mr. Ripert’s crew had bought everything at Jack’s. The total was less than $40, with two soft drinks consumed on the spot.
