Bouchon Bakery Yeasted Waffle Mix
The secret to their delightful texture is the addition of yeast, which causes the batter to expand and rise as it cooks. The package includes two mix packets and two yeast packets; just add milk, butter, water and eggs.

Ad Hoc Cake Mix
Each mix makes a 9″ double-layer cake or a 9″ x 13″ sheet cake that can be finished with Ad Hoc’s frostings (sold separately). Containing Guittard Cocoa Rouge and Nielsen-Massey vanilla, the Red Velvet mix turns out a rich scarlet cake that’s especially delicious with homemade cream cheese frosting. Also made with Nielsen-Massey vanilla, the Vanilla mix produces a buttery, golden cake ideal for any occasion. Chocolate mix infused with bittersweet Guittard cocoa lends the cake a rich, dark hue.

Ad Hoc Fried Chicken Kit
The fried chicken recipe calls for brining, then double battering the chicken pieces. The brine, seasoned with fresh herbs and lemon, adds delicate flavor while keeping the meat tender and juicy. For a crispy golden crust, the chicken is twice dredged in a savory coating spiced with garlic, paprika and cayenne pepper before frying. Includes two packets of brine seasonings and two packets of coating mix (makes 16–20 pieces). Recipe included.
