So if you're not on board with the upcoming local appearance of Adam Richman (a.k.a. Fred Savage's forever ravenous evil twin), how about Thomas Keller? Well either way, I'm willing to bet that last sentence of mine is the first to mention both names together in the same breath.
Yes, Keller, the only known human being (other than Ferran Adria) to be able to make culinary bad-boy Anthony Bourdain blush, swoon and fawn like a schoolgirl, is coming to South Coast Plaza's Williams-Sonoma to sign copies of his latest cookbook, ad hoc for the home. There's one stipulation, you have to buy it at Williams-Sonoma the day of his visit, this Thursday, November 12, at 11 a.m.
Along with pressing flesh and meeting the man, items from the book will be prepared and passed around for sampling. Yes. You read that right: FREE THOMAS KELLER FOOD!
In other Thomas Keller news, the master chef of master chefs is close to opening another Bouchon in L.A. To those who will be there this Thursday, could you try convince him to open one up in O.C. please? Thanks!
