Ad Hoc at Home by Thomas Keller, Autographed

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 heart—flaky biscuits, chicken pot pies, New England clam bakes, cherry pies and much more.

Keller, whose restaurants The French Laundry in Yountville, California, and Per Se in New York have revolutionized American haute cuisine, is equally adept at preparing simpler meals. In this cookbook inspired by the menu of his casual restaurant Ad Hoc in Yountville, he showcases more than 200 recipes for family-style meals.

This book captures Keller at his most playful, serving up such truck-stop classics as potato hash with bacon and melted onions, and heartier fare including beef stroganoff and roasted spring leg of lamb. With the help of fun full-color photographs, the great chef gives step-by-step lessons in kitchen basics, like how to perfectly shape a basic hamburger, truss a chicken, or dress a salad.

Best of all, where Keller’s previous best-selling cookbooks were for the ambitious advanced cook, Ad Hoc at Home is filled with quicker and easier recipes that will be welcomed by both kitchen novices and more experienced cooks who want the master’s ultimate recipes.

For this book, ‘Autographed’’ refers to a signed bookplate.

Just Buy it for the Autograph!!!
It's Thomas Keller for God sakes!!!!!! His books are amazing, he owns how many starred restaurants and has been on the worlds 50 best resaurant list how many times? Ad Hoc, though it is autographed, is written more as a memorial to his father than as a cookbook and the introduction makes that clear. Everything the man prepares in the book he prepared for his father for whom he had cared for until his death. It is a great book not just for the recipes, or the autograph, but for the feeling you get when you read it. It is as if you can feel his joy for making these dishes for his father while also feeling the pain of knowing they are all just memories of the same man who passed away. It is a great book indeed and I have to recommend it, but not only because its autographed, but because I am the son of a chef and I know what its like to share recipes and cook with and for my father. This book definitely hits home for me
