Thomas Keller in Ad Hoc at Home showcases dishes that can be made every day (and not just for special occasions). Invaluable lessons, secrets, tips and tricks - as well as charming personal anecdotes - accompany recipes for such classics as the best fried chicken, beef Stroganoff, roasted spring leg of lamb, hamburger, the crispiest fried fish, chicken soup with dumplings, potato hash with bacon and melted onions, and superlative grilled cheese sandwiches, apple fritters, buttermilk biscuits, relishes and pickles, cherry pie - 200 recipes in all.

Thomas Keller received yet another James Beard Award in 2006 (this time for Outstanding Restaurateur), and is the only American-born chef to have two three-starred Michelin restaurants. His restaurants are The French Laundry, Bouchon, Bouchon Bakery, and Ad Hoc, all in Yountville, California, as well as Bouchon in Las Vegas, and per se in Manhattan.





1. Chuck on 8/4/2010, said:

Ad hoc at home is different. I find it inspiring; a chef thinking deeply about food. Keller feels the rightness of his ingredients in the same way a veteran aircraft mechanic feels the rightness of the mechanical thing or the sage doctor feels the imbalances of his patients. Ideas and insights make this book, the recipes are just the canvas for expressing and executing the thoughts stimulated by the text. This book is the distillation of a passionate persons years of effort. It is a brilliant book, if you only buy one cookbook this year, make it this one. -C.
