It's Thomas Keller month in Los Angeles (and everywhere, really). The famed chef (The French Laundry, Per Se, Ad Hoc, Bouchon) is in town the next two weeks, to open Bouchon in Beverly Hills, which premiers November 18th, and to do a few book signings. His new Ad Hoc At Home cookbook, a rather more accessible book than his previous cookbooks, is now available. Keller will be signing books at the Williams Sonoma in Santa Monica on Monday, at the Torrance Borders the week after that, and at the Williams Sonoma at the South Coast Plaza. (Check below for specifics.) Williams Sonoma will have Ad Hoc At Home, as well as Bouchon and The French Laundry available for sale; Borders will have all four books (Ad Hoc At Home, Bouchon, The French Laundry, Under Pressure) for sale. And if you haven't already made your Bouchon reservations, get in line with the rest of us.
Keller book signings: Monday, November 9th, from 12:00 – 2:00pm at Williams Sonoma: 1600 Montana Avenue, Santa Monica. Tuesday, November 17th from 7:00 – 9:00pm at Borders: 3700 Torrance Blvd., Torrance. Thursday, November 12th from 11:00am – 1:00pm at Williams Sonoma: South Coast Plaza, 3333 South Bristol St., Costa Mesa.
