I have been an admirer of Thomas Keller for a long time. His restaurant books are beautifully photographed and as a chef his attention to detail is second to none. In Ad Hoc, none of his attention to detail is sacrificed and anyone with an interest in cooking would be able to follow these receipies to their conclusion. However this is not a book for anyone who wants 'meals in minutes'. You will need to invest a reasonable amount of time in nearly all the recipies in this book, it's food you make for people you love and want to nuture. It's not food for skinny minnies!
