Happy Friday Loves! Unlike my usual Musts, Lusts and Loves this week it’s all about ONE thing. What do you wonder could possibly satisfy all 3 categories? Not what, but rather who. Thomas Keller. (If you don’t know who Thomas Keller is then just stop reading and go about your day, if you do then by all means read on).
Last year the Mr. and I spent a week in heaven (otherwise known as Yountville) where we gorged ourselves on food and wine (lots of wine). Though I obviously knew of Thomas Keller I hadn’t had the pleasure of eating at any of his restaurants. And then like a kid in a candy store in 1 week we dined at Ad Hoc, Bouchon, Bouchon Bakery, and the crazy-amazing The French Laundry. We even spent time in The French Laundry Kitchen…beyond amaze. So when I heard he was coming to Atlanta for a signing of his latest book…well done and done. And it’s not just a signing, it’s also a tasting of sweet treats at Aria.
Below are all of the deets, and I imagine there are other stops on his tour so check it out and see if he’s coming to your city. And if you’re in Atlanta I’ll see you there. Happy weekend loves. xoxo
