Book Description

Nov. 6 2009
Thomas Keller shares family-style recipes that you can make any or every day.

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, 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 Home—a cookbook inspired by the menu of his casual restaurant Ad Hoc in Yountville—he 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 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 embraced by both kitchen novices and more experienced cooks who want the ultimate recipes for American comfort-food classics.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not a scary Thomas Keller book... May 13 2010
As a novice cook, I appreciated that this oversize book has lots of full-colour illustrations that detail tasks I've never been quite sure about, like how to properly truss a chicken or cut it into eight pieces. It has detailed instructions for beginners but plenty of inspiring recipes that are more challenging. It was not nearly as intimidating as I thought a Thomas Keller cookbook would be, and if you like to read cookbooks and spend time a bit of time in the kitchen, I highly recommend it. It's more than pretty enough to keep on your coffee table, too.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a great book.... July 15 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book will open your eyes to some really interesting and "why didn't I think of that" twists to long time traditional home style/comfort food recipes. Thomas also provides lots of his interesting kitchen philosophies/techniques and procedures.which are a must read.
I can't imagine anyone that loves to cook or wants to cook not wanting this book. Lots of great images as well.

This cookbook is great to have in the collection. Wonderful recipes, beautiful images and it isn't completely full of crazy high end ingredients. Perfect for cooking family style meals.
