I cook at home, but these classes have inspired me to not take the route of "good enough" but to make the best possible food at all times. My family deserves to eat beautiful food.

very good learning, from basics to things more complex, i recommend 100% all this course

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.

Outstanding class. Chef Keller is an amazing teacher. I am a very good cook and I learned so many things that are going to take me to the next level. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge, your expertise and your passion for food and cooking. We are in a dinner club of 8 couples - now I just have to figure out how to pull off some of these recipes for 16! I hope Chef Keller does another class- I am anxious to learn more more more!! Thank you!

Thank you Mr Keller for your teaching abilities and opening up your kitchen to us. I learned a lot!

Chef, thank you so much. I do not try everything you teach, however I intend to. As I have progressed through your first series to your second I have increased my understanding of cooking fundamentals drastically. I certainly hope you do a third series so I can continue to follow along and grow my understanding of food and cooking. I love that I feel more confident experimenting with new meats that were daunting before this class. I am excited to try new things. My taste preferences have drastically changed and I am more willing and excited to try new flavors and other things I was unwilling or not wanting to try before. Thank you again, this class was exceptional and you are a true treasure of an instructor. All the best.

Thank you for this series. So inspiring and most of all my family will enjoy many new taste treats at the table...
