    Hi,

    You will find some reviews here

    and here

    For a taste of the food from the UK, the book is excellent and should be thrilling for a fellow chef!

    half.com has the French Laundry (Keller) cookbook for $38.00, probably comes from Jessica's Biscuits, most cookbooks I've ordered from half have come from there.

    I ate recently at the French Laundry in Napa Valley and can tell you it was possibly the most accomplished and impressive restaurant meal I have ever had. I ate with two other chefs..We had EACH of us, a 21 course tasting menu (different for each). I know of no other restaurant that comes close to the level of perfectionism, the sheer ambition of the French Laundry--absolutely extraordinary. My friends at the table a 3 star NYT chef and 4 star NYT chef were both equally blown away. There's noone else out there like Keller ..ANTHONY BOURDAIN

    I knew I had read something bad about French Laundry somewhere else on this website and here it is: French Laundry

    If the link doesn't work, it's under "Inside Scoop" and the post is "Greystone".
