Overview


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.

    It's inspired me to cook through Bouchon!

    One day, I received The Complete Thomas Keller Collection, including The French Laundry Cookbook and Bouchon as a gracious gift. I recall how the gigantic books became progressively heavier in my arms as I cradled them home that day. I was unsure whether my heart was beating fast from the anticipation of being finally able to pour over the pages or from being weighted down during my long walk. Regardless, my heart has never beat faster for any other cookbook so it must be love.

    I was instantly captured by Bouchon's comfortable and practical approach to French cooking and by Keller's emphasis on manifesting the ingredients' potential sensibly over needlessly manipulating and torturing food. This chimes in well with my cultural and personal philosophy towards food. I decided to cook my way through Bouchon. So far, it's been challenging but it's a practical and rewarding experience for the home cook. Keller really breaks down the basics and fundamental techniques and I am learning a lot.

    As for French Laundry, so far, it's only eye candy for me. It's beautifully put together and I hope to one day attempt those recipes as well.

    Now I'm cooking my way through it. Watch my progress at http://www.bouchonfor2.com!
