Quickly. First. (Slow seconds coming in a future post). Because everything about and around this man requires calculation, lightning speed, and laser precision in execution, including how you interact with him.
Formulating a solid strategy so you can show up to work early Monday morning, then slowly but surely “contract” some fast-acting email-borne-only-to-you spam flu virus that has you out the door by oh, say about 11:30 with a surgical mask hiding your evil gleeful smile because you weren’t really lying when you mentioned something about “swine.”

Over the next two weeks, Thomas Keller will be signing copies of Ad Hoc at Home at Williams-Sonoma and Borders stores in Los Angeles and Orange County. The schedule itemizes his in-store appearances below.
Strategize wisely. TKells’ first appearance is Monday, November 9 at 12 PM in Santa Monica.
That’s this Monday.
We’ll write you a doctor’s note.
