As the name of this cookbook implies, it comes from the master mind of Thomas Keller, founder of one of the most famous restaurants in America (if not THE most famous), The French Laundry in Napa, California.
In this huge hardback cookbook, with its suggested retail price of $50, Keller takes on the art of baking. If you are a serious baker, you will be in heaven when you open this book and see all of the glorious photographs and tantalizing recipes. They are not just for sweets — there are plenty of bread recipes in this book.
Here’s a sampling of the recipes included: Brioche, English Muffins, Sticky Buns, Lime Coconut Eclairs (and eclairs in general), Plum Tart with Almond Cream, Olive Oil Cake, and Chocolate Cherry Scones.

I will announce the winner on New Year’s Eve.
