Ooh, here's some exciting news -- there will soon be a superstar in our midst.
The term "celebrity chef" gets thrown around a lot these days, but there's no question that Thomas Keller truly is one.
Whether you think The French Laundry in Yountville, CA, is the best restaurant in America or simply one of the best, surely you know the name of the celebrated chef behind it.
He'll be coming to Sur La Table at Kierland Commons in Scottsdale on Wednesday, November 11, for a Q&A and booksigning from 3 to 5 p.m.
Yes, Keller has a new book coming out, Ad Hoc at Home, which will be for sale at the store starting in November. It's a full of comfort food recipes for home cooks, inspired by his outher Yountville eatery Ad Hoc. He'll be signing copies of that as well as his other titles, The French Laundry Cookbook, Bouchon, and Under Pressure.
(On a related note, have you read Phoebe Damrosch's memoir Service Included, about working at Keller's celebrated New York restaurant, Per Se? There's some fascinating behind-the-scenes stuff . . .)
