Hubert Keller Signature & Bio
Signature and bio of chef Hubert Keller, author of The Cuisine of Hubert Keller. Keller is a French-born chef, well known for his restaurants Fleur de Lys in San Francisco, California and Burger Bar in Las Vegas, Nevada. He is often a guest judge on the hit culinary reality series Top Chef.
Wow, what a different a hit TV series and restaurant make. Cookbook Viilage sold this signed copy of Keller's The Cuisine of Hubert Keller cookbook back in 2008 to one of our favorite customers (and huge cookbook collector). Little did we know how media fame would boost the value of Keller's signed cookbook. We sold it for just around $10 at auction on eBay. Now a signed Keller goes closer to the $80-$100 mark. We've always said that cookbook collecting is an investment like any other. Here's the proof...the cookbook went up 8-10 times in value. Anyway, we are glad it went to a good home.
