I'll admit it, I was skeptical. Although Ad Hoc should be the most me of all the Thomas Keller books I still raised my eyebrows when Alex expressed his enthusiasm for it. During Jonathan Benno's reign Per Se was my favorite restaurant for a splurge. Could TK, the master of fine dining, really do down home? This book is the real thing. We paid for it ourselves, as we do with most (but not all) of the books that we've actually loved, and I'd happily spend the money again to share it with someone I thought would appreciate it. When we happen to find ourselves in Napa Valley again I'll look forward to knocking on their doors and experiencing it all for myself.
