Thomas Keller is a master chef and a master teacher. However, I couldn't help noticing when he handled raw chicken (paillard) with bare hands he never washed his hands thus contaminating everything he touched afterwards??

Patience. Persistence. Keller gold! What I see with TK is: be organized, be neat, enjoy the process, share with pride. Love his totally CHILL technique. First noticed this years ago watching him make a roast chicken on the internet. Then making a beautiful bacon and egg sandwich on the "extras" for the movie "Spanglish" with Adam Sandler (check it out!). Even Anthony Bourdain admired this trait in Keller.

Thank you so much Chef Keller! I have learned so much and am inspired to continue to learn and grow in my culinary skills. Hope to see a third MasterClass instructed by you.

Chef Keller, thank you from the bottom of my heart. Your unmatched passion for food and the endless hours of work you have clearly put into your course and cooking books enable ordinary people to tap into the magic of food. I had always wanted to learn to cook to host meals where my friends and family could come together, eat, and share experiences, stories, and food memories, completely immersed in the pleasure of company and food. Prior to studying your material, I had a love of food but little confidence that I could ever construct such a meal. But I set myself to closely studying your material. It has paid off in volumes and my dream was realized within 1 year. I actually made meals where people could loose themselves in great food and connect together. The fried chicken, roasted chicken, beef short ribs, crab cakes, and cauliflower chick pea salad (the latter two from the Ad Hoc book) are some of the big hits. This was only possible because of your high level of culinary knowledge and teaching ability. You really have gifts in this area and make the world and those around you better. Please continue writing about and teaching cooking. You do unlock the magic of food for everyone; it spreads joy and, as you like to say, nourishes others.

Thanks Chef Keller and MasterClass for this insightful lesson. While I may not take the time necessary for the stocks and sauces the techniques are invaluable. The sauteing and roasting portions were my favorite.
