The lecture starts at 7pm.
Thomas Keller and Sebastien Rouxel in Conversation with Dana Cowin.
Baked goods that are marvels of ingenuity and simplicity from the famed Bouchon Bakery
The tastes of childhood have always been a touchstone for Thomas Keller, and in this dazzling amalgam of American and French baked goods, you'll find recipes for the beloved TKOs and Oh Ohs (Keller's takes on Oreos and Hostess's Ho Hos) and all the French classics he fell in love with as a young chef apprenticing in Paris: the baguettes, the macarons, the mille-feuilles, the tartes aux fruits.
Lecture starts at 7pm - let's meet around 6:30pm to get seats together. Update your RSVP even on the day of the event so we can adjust the number of seats to save.
