by Thomas Keller
I admit it. I've had a crush on Thomas Keller since he was a struggling chef in Los Angeles 20 years ago. I've never really been a good enough home
chef to dazzle my dinner guests with his three previous culinary standouts
-- "French Laundry", "Bouchon" or "Under Pressure" So I've been waitingin our cookbook corner since I started at Book Soup in June for "Ad Hoc
At Home" to arrive and, sigh, I wasn't disappointed. I've fallen in love with Keller all over again. This book is for the home cook who wants a little challenge in the kitchen with a big result.
Buttermilk Fried Chicken
Asparagus and Tomato Bacon Stew
My Mother and 5-year old niece had a tug-of-war over the last chicken leg and the cobbler was great for breakfast.
"This collection is what legions of Keller fans have been waiting for, a book that allows them to replicate the merest glimmer of his culinary genius in their own homes," raves Publishers Weekly.

Amy made Kellor's chocolate chip cookies for us and we were blown away. Us being blown away:
ps - This is the best looking cook book I've ever seen. It's an art object as much as a cook book.
