Thomas Keller...Only Minutes Away....

Amy Kundrat

Don’t miss Chef Thomas Keller signing copies of his "ad hoc at home" cookbook this Friday, June 25 at 12 noon at The Westchester in White Plains. 

Chef Thomas Keller is the last chef whose cuisine would be described as “accessible” or “approachable.” If you’ve stepped across the threshold of any his celebrated restaurants including The French Laundry, Bouchon, Ad Hoc, or Per Se, you know no detail is overlooked. And if you’ve thumbed through his exquisitely detailed and daunting tomes such as The French Laundry Cookbook, let alone even try to cook from them, you know Chef Keller’s recipes take no shortcuts (and no prisoners). 

But accessible he will be. In his cookbook "ad hoc at home," Chef Keller brings us simple but beautiful recipes inspired by his more casual Yountville eatery, Ad Hoc. This is the food Keller cooks in his own home, and the recipes are served up family style (and I'm not talking Carmine's). Having sampled much of this cookbook, I can say it is worth owning. 

He will be appearing at Williams Sonoma THIS FRIDAY at The Westchester to promote and sign copies of his recently published Ad Hoc at Home inspired by his eponymous Yountville, CA restaurant.

Chef Keller promises the book is "...a big collection of family meals and everyday staples, delicious approachable food, recipes that are doable at home. No immersion circulator required. No complicated garnishes. I promise!"

Chef Keller, I don’t believe you for a second but I’ll follow you where ever your chefs knives take you.

Please note: Chef Keller will only be signing copies of ad hoc at home purchased at Williams-Sonoma (proof of purchase will be required, so don’t try sneaking in your well worn copy of Bouchon). 

Williams-Sonoma at the The Westchester is located at 125 Westchester Ave., White Plains 10601 Friday, June 25, 2010 at 12:00pm | (914) 644-8360
