Thomas Keller, famed chef at French Laundry in Napa Valley, is coming to Toronto for the first time on November 30. The renowned chef, whose California and New York City restaurants have each earned three Michelin stars, will be here promoting his newest book, Ad Hoc at Home. The recipes come from Keller’s newest restaurant, Ad Hoc, which opened in 2006 and serves a family-style prix fixe menu each night. Keller will be interviewed by Alison Fryer of the Cookbook Store, then take questions from the audience. At $80, tickets (which include a copy of the book) are pricey, but are a far sight cheaper than eating at any of the aforementioned restaurants.
Thomas Keller, Nov. 30. $80. Toronto Reference Library, Appel Salon, 789 Yonge St., 1-800-268-6018, torontopubliclibrary.ca/appelsalon.
