‘Ad Hoc’ is a latin phrase meaning ‘For This’ and is used for designating committees and things that are supposed to do one specific task. (It’s one of those Latin phrases that are good to know for crossword puzzles, and to avoid being confused by smarty-pants lawyer friends…Quid Pro Quo* is another good one to know. Also Semper Ubi, Sub Ubi**)
In today’s case, Ad Hoc meant another extraordinary meal created by Thomas Keller and team in Yountville, consumed with gusto with the Fat Tuesday group and spouses.
*Quid Pro Quo: What for what
** Semper Ubi Sub Ubi: Always wear underwear
