Hubert Keller's Souvenirs - Memoir and Cookbook
Think of Hubert Keller's Souvenirs as a delicious combination of cookbook and personal memoir. His work is recognized as some of the best cooking on the West Coast with his restaurant Fleur de Lys in San Francisco, and his grace shows through when he appears in public and on camera. I had the pleasure of meeting him many, many years ago at an event at the Ritz-Carlton when I was a lowly pastry cook just learning the ropes. While he would never remember me, I remember him and his commanding presence.
