I was finally able to get Bouchon at the local library. I was really hoping the Basic Preparations and Techniques section in the back would be worth it over The French Laundry as someone who still has plenty to learn, but it was disappointing. It was disappointing because I already have Ad Hoc At Home. The "Basics" section in Ad Hoc at Home has so much overlap with Bouchon that it isn't worth it. Yes, Bouchon has more stock recipes, some jus recipes, and other French Bistro specific preparations that Ad Hoc at Home doesn't, but I can definitely live without all of that for now as I more concerned with learning various techniques as opposed to very specific French Bistro cooking.
If anything, after looking at TFL and Bouchon, it only made me realize how perfect Ad Hoc at Home really is. There is just so much information crammed into Ad Hoc at Home that I don't think I want to even spend any money on another Thomas Keller cook book until I've exhausted at least 50 to 75 percent of the information in Ad Hoc at Home. And by then, I will buy both TFL and Bouchon at the same time and be content for the rest of my life.
Having a library nearby is also great as I can easily get TFL anytime I want. TFL's recipes appealed to me more so than Bouchon's too.
BUT, any major/popular recipe I'd want to do out of TFL and Bouchon (and I will probably do 1 or 2 this coming Spring) IS ONLINE!
I'm more excited for the Zwilling Knives, All Clad d5 Skillet and Saucepan, and Cuisinart Multiclad Pro Stock Pot, I'm getting for Christmas more than anything now!
Thank you all for your insights! They were greatly appreciated!
