The cookbook mold is about to be broken again with a new book (the first since 2012) from America’s most celebrated chef, Thomas Keller—this time focusing on his legendary American fine dining institutions, the French Laundry and Per Se.


“Inspirational and elaborate. . . . Every elegant page projects Keller’s high standard of ‘perfect culinary execution’. . . . This superb work is as much philosophical treatise as gorgeous cookbook.” Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEW
