Thomas Keller's Ad Hoc at Home Cookbook

In this cookbook inspired by the menu of his casual eatery Ad Hoc, award-winning chef Thomas Keller showcases more than 200 family-style recipes. While best known for his highly acclaimed restaurants French Laundry and Per Se, here the haute-cuisine icon points his toque toward the comfort foods closest to his heart. You'll find accessible recipes for flaky biscuits, chicken pot pies and cherry pies alongside heartier fare like beef Stroganoff and roasted spring leg of lamb - all meant to be served from big bowls and platters and passed hand to hand at the table. A chapter devoted to homemade tapenades, chutneys, mustards and jams will keep you well stocked with all you need to elevate a simple meal in seconds. Stunning full-color photographs accompany step-by-step shots of specific techniques, providing both novice and experienced cooks the ultimate source for America's favorite fare. Hardcover, 359 pages.

The Thomas Keller Book For Families
December 10, 2013
Perfect book of the home cook! Awesome recipes that are a step up from what you'd find in most celebrity chef "home cook" books. Its not filled with 8 million pasta recipes or burger recipes. Its filled with sophisticated yet delicious and show stopping recipes that have technique and skill yet are easy for an untrained cook. If you are a home cook whose looking to elevate your kitchen to the next level-this book is for you.

Bought this cookbook from my niece's registry with the Tuscany Cookbook holder and she was thrilled!
Use Williams-Sonoma gift wrap, and it was perfect!

Excellent Recipes for the Home Chef
May 2, 2012
Got this in an All Clad promotion at my local WS about a year ago. I have cooked several delicious meals from the recipes. This is the first book from T Keller attuned to the home kitchen. It can be a little clumsy to handle when cooking, but it is so worth it!
Pros: Durable, Quality, Versatile
Cons: Weight, Size
