Cookbook Daily: Ad Hoc at Home

Ad Hoc At Home

Thanks to a very thoughtful wife, I was given a copy of this amazing cookbook when it was first published at the end of 2009. I’m glad she was paying attention (my son got one too. He’s also glad).

Thomas Keller is obviously a brilliant chef and great restaurateur (I probably didn’t even need to say that). Here’s an opportunity for the home chef/cook to take a stab at some of Chef Keller’s classics.

After reading my copy cover to cover, the first thing I tried my hand at was the Buttermilk Fried Chicken. And, I must say, HOME RUN!

This book is filled with delicious recipes that you and your family will love. They are more casual and more approachable than the French Laundry Cookbook. The recipes are accompanied by some mouthwatering food photography and entertaining graphics. The entire book has a very relaxed and warm feel to it. You might just want to snuggle up with it!

A must for any self respecting home cookbook collector.
