Thomas Keller is an inspiration to any chef who desires the journey of perfection. Mr. Keller himself warns that perfection is the journey, that once you reach it, it is no longer perfection. The stories in this book transpire the ordinary substance of food into a transcendiary extraordinary experience. The pictures are breathtaking, the recipes are sublime. Many home chefs may not be able to re-create these dishes in true French Laundry style, but you can dream that living in the middle of the western desert, that someday, you can achieve greatness through culinary delights.
I was very pleased with The French Laundry Cookbook.. I had seen it on a trip to the wine counrty in Cal and was pleased to get at a much reduced price at Overstock. It was not my first purchase , I have been very pleased with all of my purchases and will continue to shop at overstock.
