From two acclaimed, award-winning restaurants came two of the most acclaimed, award-winning cookbooks ever published now packaged together in a luxurious slipcased boxed set, the ideal 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 1998, Chef Keller opened Bouchon, so that I d have a place to eat after cooking all night at the French Laundry, and that restaurant, too, gave birth to a groundbreaking cookbook. Now, fifteen years after Thomas Keller first set foot in what would become a landmark restaurant, these two extraordinary books are offered in a striking new slipcased edition. With this year's opening of the Bouchon Bakery in New York City, and last year's momentous Michelin guide that awarded Keller's Per Se the top honors, Keller is increasingly in the limelight and his inventive, delicious food is increasingly in the consciousness of a national audience. "The Complete Keller" is the perfect gift for anyone who loves fine food.
