Jun 13, Robyn rated it liked it Shelves: My 3-star review might be a little bit unfair.
The French Laundry Cookbook is a 5-star version of what it is. But what it is, is not something I find useful. Two examples: I'm not kidding. The French Laundry is a beautiful restaurant, Thomas Keller is an amazing chef, and together they are something unbelievable. This cookbook probably did more to show home cooks just how unattainable the French Laundry experience is than it did anything else.
I've long been proud that the restaurant exists here in my beloved California, and only a bit of a drive away at that. I quite enjoyed the non-recipe sections, short as they were, as a window into Keller and the restaurant I read an article online a few years ago in which the journalist was allowed to spend a day behind-the-scenes at the French Laundry.
It was fascinating in the same way the short non-recipe sections of this cookbook are, but that article was longer than all of those sections of this book put together. My favourite bit was probably Keller's story about the rabbits, because it's a lesson I wish more chefs more people would learn. Beautiful photography. In the end, as I say, it's a fantastic version of what it is.
But I am grateful to have gotten it from the library, because I have no need of what it is, and would never open it a second time. Dec 10, Robert Wright rated it liked it Shelves: Yes, this book has many mouthwatering recipes, but it is far from a "cookbook. The chef's protests to the contrary, it will take more than passion to accomplish an approximation of the recipes outlined in this book. What you need is here if you dare to try.
But you'll also need a large bank account for ingredients and equipment, access to them, and time on your hands. This is a chef for whom only the finest will do, and woe betide the home cook, no mat Yes, this book has many mouthwatering recipes, but it is far from a "cookbook.
This is a chef for whom only the finest will do, and woe betide the home cook, no matter how passionate, who can't afford the finest cookware or a generous supply of lobster, pate, and truffles. I'm not saying you shouldn't have a passion for fine ingredients.
Just that other chefs have a better feel for bringing that passion into a relatable paradigm for typical home cooks. Encourage people to use the finest, freshest ingredients from their farmer's markets or other local sources, by all means.
This is a large, coffee table style book, more intended for appreciation than execution of the recipes. And even in that appreciative aim, I think it falls flat due to a layout that often has pictures of the described food several pages away or not at all. A fine bit of food porn. But it doesn't make me want to cook.
It makes me want to eat at the French Laundry. Jan 19, Kimberly rated it it was amazing. A visual, oral orgasm. And, the book that, through a single turn of the page, sparked my love affair with the mandoline slicer.
No cookbook has made labored cooking look so effortless, presentation so luxurious and the history of sourcing materials so intriguing. Dec 01, Adam rated it it was amazing. Food porn at its best. While I most often love what has historically been "poor people food" think pot roast, chicken pot pie, dishes cooked slowly and for a long, long time Southern American and French provincial cuisines , I am also totally in love with food as art. In French Laundry, Keller documents the art that is created at his restaurant every day.
Many of the recipes are not simple a total of 28 pages dedicated to lobster mac and cheese and all the sub-recipes necessary , but if are Food porn at its best. Many of the recipes are not simple a total of 28 pages dedicated to lobster mac and cheese and all the sub-recipes necessary , but if are dedicated to food, or simply want to page through and drool on yourself, this is the book for you. Mar 16, titi rated it it was amazing Shelves: French Laundry, bar none, is the best restaurant in U.
Executing the recipes with success is what must mountain climbers feel after conquering Mr. Everest, or if you were a Catholic, like my mom, kissing the Pope's ring, or if you were my dad, sleeping with Sophia Loren. It is pure heaven. And the photography is delicious. Feb 06, Autumn rated it it was ok Shelves: Too spectacular to actually cook from, but more accessible than Adria's book.
Also contains an icky story about killing rabbits that could have come from Possum Living. French chefs, you gross me out with your desire for veal, offal and bunnies. Dec 29, Ross rated it it was ok.
Beautiful book. Not a single thing in it that I would ever attempt to make on my own. Best to have saved the money and put it towards an appetizer at the restaurant itself one day. Because really, my kitchen and yours is not the French Laundry, so the result is bound to be a disappointment. Since I have food allergies and other health restrictions, I like to have the very best versions of the foods I can eat. I also like to give people I love food experiences they will love in spite of any changes I have made to recipes.
In this book, Keller offers modern versions of classic dishes which are far from overcooked, even if they take time to make.
He tells us how and why to do things in ways which will lead to immense satisfaction for both the cook and the diner. The photographs of dishes are really beautiful as well as informative and the index of specialty foods and tools, and where to find them, is much appreciated. Jan 13, Rafal rated it it was amazing. As much a cookbook as a manifesto and cornerstone of an entire movement in food and cooking.
I think one of the best ways to talk about this book is that it is essentially the antithesis of 30 minute meals. Now I am a fan of Rachel Ray and her work so do not take this as a negative. Keller takes an almost Buddhist approach to cooking.
From mindfulness of your ingredients whether they be ideally sourced or not to an unabashed focus while cooking, Keller advocates enjoying the process rather than As much a cookbook as a manifesto and cornerstone of an entire movement in food and cooking.
From mindfulness of your ingredients whether they be ideally sourced or not to an unabashed focus while cooking, Keller advocates enjoying the process rather than seeing it as tedium. Very much a sense of "If you can't get out of it, get into it. I do not doubt anyone with basic cooking skills cannot make quite a few of the things here.
Many recipes like the gazpacho, gougeres, and lemon tart are fairly simple in their execution while being refined to a level of clarity. Think consomme vs regular soup.
This is not to say there aren't quite a few challenges. Many main dishes have a myriad of ingredients and preparations, which, assuming you have taken the "enjoy the process" mantra seriously, will give you a full day of fun.
I have made several dishes from this book and all are delicious. A few are even transcendent. Whenever people ask me about this book I always encourage them to read it. There are a ton of simpler recipes here that you can make even if you are not ready for the challenges of Keller's full menus.
Feb 14, Ginny rated it liked it Shelves: This is intense cooking.
Keller is a maniac with the details and the complicated recipes. I would love to dine in one of his restaurants. But, the recipes are not for the faint of heart. I've done about 5 recipes - each was complicated, time consuming, and upped my knowledge of cooking. For the amount of work I would have wished each recipe was a knockout.
Most were great 3 one was good, one was never do again. Not sure it was worth the immense effort. Not the sort of book you cook from, but absolutely the sort of book to inspire and to appreciate the artistry of a true chef. Mar 06, Summer rated it really liked it Shelves: I like this cookbook, a lot. However, it is not practical for me to make a good majority of these foods.
Eating them and loving them is another matter!
Mar 03, Helena rated it it was amazing Shelves: This book may not be for the faint of heart, but for someone, such as myself, who loves pushing themselves forward in the kitchen For several years now I'd wanted to become a chef, but because of health concerns I had to put that dream on the back-burner and become a multimedia artist instead.
Because of that, I find myself cooking out of this book, finding myself cooking these meals, and other meals that have really pushed the boundaries of self at home. This is one of thos This book may not be for the faint of heart, but for someone, such as myself, who loves pushing themselves forward in the kitchen This is one of those cookbooks that have me writing in the margins, adding to recipes to make them my own.
I love how in-depth each section is, teaching about every part of cooking, rather than just the recipes themselves.
How well-rounded this cookbook is has not only taught me more about cooking, but it's also given me something I never thought I'd have: The recipes, the heart, the soul, and the writing has given me enough of my dream for me to feel better about myself so I can continue as a multimedia artist.
It's one book that I'm most thankful for. It makes me a better cook. You will think differently about what you are cooking and how to extract the most and best flavor from it.
Mar 20, Kiera rated it liked it. Dec 03, Sarah Copeland rated it it was amazing. If you love challenges and have a lot of time, this is the place to go for perfection.
I haven't used it in years--I cooked from this in my pre-kids days, but I will never give this book up regardless. May 29, Cristy rated it really liked it. This coffee table sized tome covers recipes made in the kitchens of the famous French Laundry. These are not in any way for the average home cook. This is not beginner stuff, it is advanced by any metric. Everything is done the long way around exactly as Mr. Keller prefers it. Oct 23, Rebecca rated it it was ok Shelves: Pictures of Recipes? Commentary on Recipes?
Nutrition Facts? No Recipe style? Very, very fancy.
Any keepers? I wouldn't attempt any of this at home, except for maybe the potato gnocchi. Too reliant on gelatin, caviar and truffles. May 18, Dusica rated it it was amazing. Love reading about cooking; always fanciful pics;.
This was a terrifically fun book to read. I will not be making any of the recipes as they are very complicated. Published in: Full Name Comment goes here. Are you sure you want to Yes No. Be the first to like this. No Downloads.

The French Laundry, Yountville
Keller is a wizard, a purist, a man obsessed with getting it right. And this, his first cookbook, is every bit as satisfying as a French Laundry meal itself: Most dazzling is how simple Keller's methods are: One hundred and fifty superlative recipes are exact recipes from the French Laundry kitchen—no shortcuts have been taken, no critical steps ignored, all have been thoroughly tested in home kitchens.

Keller's story, shared through the writing of Michael Ruhlman, shows how this chef was both born and made. Mar 16, titi rated it it was amazing Shelves: My favourite bit was probably Keller's story about the rabbits, because it's a lesson I wish more chefs more people would learn.
