From the Publisher
Two award-winning books in one box offer a lifetime of
learning for anyone who loves fine food.
From two acclaimed restaurants came two of the most
acclaimed, award-winning cookbooks ever published-now packaged
together in a luxurious slipcased boxed set, the ideal holiday gift
for any food lover.
First there was French Laundry in Napa Valley, setting a new
standard for American fine dining. Then there was The French
Laundry Cookbook, setting a new standard for American
cookbooks. In 2006, Chef Keller opened Ad Hoc, his casual
family-style restaurant that serves a single menu a day, and that
restaurant, too, gave birth to a groundbreaking cookbook, in fact a
New York Times best seller.
Whereas Ad Hoc at Home offers a huge happiness-inducing
collection of family-style recipes that includes lunch-counter
favorites-lemon meringue and cherry pie; such classics as
Buttermilk Fried Chicken and Herbed Rack of Lamb, plus Thomas''s
mom''s coconut cake and his dad''s favorite meatballs-The
French Laundry Cookbook is a culinary ode to finesse. Every
recipe in it has become a classic: from Keller''s Salmon Cornets to
his Oysters and Pearls and Butter-Poached Lobster. From the casual
but carefully considered food of Ad Hoc at Home to The
French Laundry Cookbook''s recipes at their most refined, this
is cooking that delivers in taste, and makes us all better cooks.
