If you're excited about Thomas Keller's return but can't get any reservations, there is an alternative. TK's new cookbook, Ad Hoc at Home, is now available. Although his previous books (The French Laundry Cookbook, Bouchon, Under Pressure) were notoriously difficult and demanding, this one is being billed as "the long-awaited cookbook for the home chef (that happens to have a blowtorch lying around)." If you can overlook the occasional five hour soffrito, most of the recipes are quick and easy to make (like his chocolate chip cookies). As mentioned in the LA Times, Ad Hoc at Home is a great primer on cooking.

Thomas Keller has two book signings scheduled in LA,

  • Monday, Nov. 9th from 12 PM- 2 PM at Williams Sonoma in Santa Monica (1600 Montana Ave)
  • Tuesday, Nov. 17th from 7 PM - 9 PM at Borders in Torrance (3700 Torrance Blvd)

...and one in the OC:

  • Thursday, Nov. 12th from 11 AM- 1:00 PM at Williams-Sonoma in South Coast Plaza (3333 South Bristol St)

Make these apple fritters tonight! Recipe after the jump...
