Thomas Keller, chef and owner of Bouchon and Bouchon Bakery, will sign his newest cookbook “Under Pressure” Tuesday, June 16th from 6-7:15 pm at Bouchon in The Venetian Resort-Hotel-Casino. Guests will have the unique opportunity to meet and speak with Chef Keller.
To RSVP for this first book signing, contact Annie Kang Drachen at Bouchon at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Under Pressure” is entirely dedicated to the science of cooking sous vide, a technique used in all of Chef Keller’s restaurants. The book explains why the technique, which involves low heat cooking, achieves results that other methods simply cannot, both in flavor and precision.
Renowned food scientist Harold McGee notes, “This book introduces American cooks to one of the most important culinary innovations of modern times.”
He will discuss the book and host a Question and Answer portion from 6:00 p.m. – 6:15 p.m. prior to the actual signing. Copies of “Under Pressure” will be available for purchase the day of the event for $75, plus tax.
Named “America’s Best Chef” by TIME Magazine in 2001, Chef Keller has been awarded the most Michelin stars of any American chef and his two flagship restaurants, The French Laundry and Per Se, have alternately held the title of “Best Restaurant in the Americas.”
Chef Keller is the proprietor of eight properties including: The French Laundry, Bouchon, Bouchon Bakery and Ad Hoc in Yountville, CA; Per Se and Bouchon Bakery in New York, NY; and Bouchon and Bouchon Bakery in Las Vegas, NV.
Located in The Venetian Resort-Hotel-Casino, Venezia Tower in Las Vegas, Bouchon is a vibrant, Adam D. Tihany designed restaurant featuring a classic mosaic floor, magnificent pewter bar, antique light fixtures, and an expansive hand painted mural.
Reservations may be made by calling 702.414.6200.
