When my parents visited Boston over Mother‘s Day weekend, my mom and I got up early on Saturday morning so we could head over to Williams Sonoma. We weren‘t just going to check out all their gorgeous cookware though – we were on a mission to meet Thomas Keller at his Ad Hoc cookbook signing! I‘d heard many bloggers rave about the book and I’d been wanting to pick up a copy for awhile, so I figured this was the perfect opportunity.
We arrived in plenty of time and spent about an hour and a half in line before being escorted over to have our books signed. Chef Keller was very warm and down to Earth. My mom asked about his Bouchon Bakery Nutter Butter recipe and he metioned that a cookbook featuring items from the bakery would be out in the fall!
The book itself is gorgeous and full of pictures and recipes that make my mouth water. I‘m having a hard time deciding what to make first, so if anyone has any suggestions, please let me know! And of course I wanted to share a bit of this experience with you, so I’m giving away a signed Ad Hoc cookbook!
There are two ways to enter to win:
1. Leave a comment on this post telling me what your experience was like at one of Thomas Keller’s restaurants or let me know which of his restaurants you’d most like to try.

Oh, and the fine print: I’m sponsoring this giveaway myself and the winner will be picked with random.org on Wednesday, June 2 and announced shortly thereafter.
