If dining at the French Laundry isn’t on your bucket list, you will need to reconsider. The iconic restaurant from chef Thomas Keller opened in 1994, and upscale California dining has never been the same. In addition to earning multiple Michelin stars, the chef has opened acclaimed restaurants Bouchon, Ad Hoc and Per Se, and penned five books, which have sold more than 1 million copies, including the bestselling French Laundry Cookbook
. His own line of culinary accessories and utensils has been expertly crafted to bring the experience of his professional kitchen to home chefs, which will no doubt help spread his philosophy that a great meal is not just about food and wine, but also about having an emotional experience.
