The Best of the Best 2003: Dining – The French Laundry

<< Back to Robb Report, Best of the Best

Easily bored, chef Thomas Keller continues to challenge himself and the world of gastronomy. Whether it is cauliflower panna cotta with Beluga caviar or his version of coffee and doughnuts (cappuccino semifreddo with miniature cinnamon-sugar doughnuts), you can taste the mischievous efforts of a chef who continues to evaluate what makes things flavorful. But this is not a chef who cooks for his own amusement; dining at The French Laundry in the Napa Valley town of Yountville, Calif., is an experience of gustatory pleasure that borders on sinful.
