Thomas Keller is the only American chef running two Michelin 3-star restaurants—and one of only four such chefs in the world. Now, in his first book since 2012, Keller addresses the remarkable synergy between those restaurants, The French Laundry in Yountville, CA and per se in New York City.
Their kitchens are linked by video feed and inspiration, sharing ideas and insight in a exceptional way. But it's Keller's example that sets the tone for those amazing interactions.
The French Laundry, Per Se reflects the unique nature of this kinship as it offers more than 100 precise and painstaking recipes for dishes that have gained world-renown.
At 400 pages, The French Laundry, Per Se is beautifully illustrated with dramatic photographs of the finished dishes. The chef also reveals his approaches to sourcing ingredients, encouraging talent, and his philosophy of professional hospitality.
Professional cooks will be fascinated by this frank look at one of the most important restaurant relationships in modern times. Home cooks who seek a challenge will be inspired to push themselves as they have perhaps never done so before.
