Ad Hoc at Home

Monday, November 23, 2009

Chef Thomas Keller, whose restaurants The French Laundry in Yountville, California, and Per Se in New York have revolutionized American haute cuisine, turns his attention to simple food for the home cook. His cookbook Ad Hoc at Home is inspired by the menu of his casual restaurant, Ad Hoc in Yountville. It includes more than 200 recipes for family-style meals, such as flaky biscuits, chicken pot pies, New England clam bakes, and cherry pies.

I am so excited to hear Thomas Keller on your show today! He is my absolute favorite chef and I have all of his books.

Mr. Keller is a genius in terms of creating recipes that are easily translated by the non-professional but better-than-average home chef; every one of his recipes has come out fantastically.

In fact - I made his confit byaldi last night - for probably the 4th time this season. Please thank Mr. Keller for me!
