Ad Hoc at Home (Hardcover)
In the book every home cook has been waiting for, the revered Thomas Keller turns his imagination to the American comfort foods closest to his heartflaky biscuits, chicken pot pies, New England clam bakes, and cherry pies so delicious and redolent of childhood that they give Proust's madeleines a run for their money. Keller, whose restaurants The French Laundry in Yountville, California, and Per Se in New York have revolutionized American haute cuisine, is equally adept at turning out simpler fare.
In Ad Hoc at Homea cookbook inspired by the menu of his casual restaurant Ad Hoc in Yountvillehe showcases more than 200 recipes for family-style meals. This is Keller at his most playful, serving up such truck-stop classics as Potato Hash with Bacon and Melted Onions and grilled-cheese sandwiches, and heartier fare including beef Stroganoff and roasted spring leg of lamb. In fun, full-color photographs, the great chef gives step-by-step lessons in kitchen basics here is Keller teaching how to perfectly shape a basic hamburger, truss a chicken, or dress a salad. Best of all, where Kellers previous best-selling cookbooks were for the ambitious advanced cook,Ad Hoc at Home is filled with quicker and easier recipes that will be embraced by both kitchen novices and more experienced cooks who want the ultimate recipes for American comfort-food classics.

This is a famous cookbook for good reason. The recipes are something one could make at home but are complex in taste but not difficulty. Absolutely beautiful cookbook. Makes a superior gift for anyone who enjoys food.Read More
I love this book, but the recipes are very involved and time consuming, not for everyday cooking but more for special occasions. I love his salad dressing recipes.Read More
This is a cookbook that lives up to the media mentionings, positive reviews and hype. The pictures are luscious; the recipes are great for someone who is learning to cook or a (pardon the pun...) seasoned chef. It never assumes anything. It's not condescending or assuming and Thomas Keller went to a lot of trouble to sound sincere and accessible. This is my "go-to" cookbook now and has crowded out the other 200+ I have collected. It has emerged as a stellar favorite! You will never regret purchasing this cookbook. And if you get a chance - go to his restaurant...it's an inspired cookbook with emphasis on family style. Which means - even for people with a small household - you get the benefit of making a meal to share or a meal that can go in the freezer or vacuum bags. Cook once; eat twice. I AM TOTALLY IN LOVE WITH this CONCISE, inventive and fresh take on comfort cuisine. My family loves it, too. Buying more right NOW! p.s. It helps you with technical info, too. If you don't know how to break down a chicken or string truss a roast - you will learn all these handy tricks!Read More
