I really like how he cooked An described things like proteins and stuff that was cool

I've used a number of the techniques chef describes in detail in these classes, and his descriptions of them has improved and reinforced much of what I do as a home cook. He has instilled new confidence and given me new ideas - thanks!!!

A first class, instructional series of lessons, all explained in a very clear fashion. I am an experienced amateur cook but I still learnt a great deal from this course and Chef is a very accomplished teacher as well as a fine cook. I look forward to the 3rd course!

My favorite class so far. Thomas shares so much useful information it's amazing!

Would anyone explain Chef Keller mentioned that the grill marks are only appeared in the closed grill, not in the open fire??

Interesting about the Briquettes, The Kingsford Company was started by Henry Ford using the sawdust and scraps left over from the production of the model T. A really great use of leftover scrap, I always need hopscotch markers...


I love Chef Keller, I do. I've eaten at his place. But I can't help but think how incredibly unseasoned this looks! Geez.

Seriously, can anyone please tell me what kind of “plates” these are or proper name of them as well where is a good place to find them. You can see it at Time index 0:08 I think in the video. I’ve been seeing these plates a lot lately and lots of chefs using them and for the life of me I have no idea what they are called and where to buy or order them from.


That was fascinating! I agree with the charcoal not being a good choice. I'm glad he showed better options.


It is so great watching Chef Keller's videos. I've said this before, but I feel it bears repeating. I've watched Ramsey's first class and it seems to me that he is performing, while Chef Puck demonstrates. Both interesting and informative in their own ways. Keller teaches and teaches more. With the first two, I learn something in each class, with Chef Keller I learn something every lesson. One thing I learned is I can't afford that charcoal. :-)

This is not a technique for those who have hard wired smoke detectors! (My husband says I use our smoke detector as a timer) Very cool hibachi and Japanese imported coal. That is one pricey mixed grill. One thing I've been told is that meat should only be turned once— rather than flipped around. I like how he is mindful of adjusting things to accommodate different cooking times. I love the piggy back chicken tender idea. His delicate use of his long tweezer tongs reminds me of my aunt, a nurse, who fried her tortillas using surgical forceps .

I have never seen a habachi like this one. Where can one like this be purchased? Thank you.
