Then, learn to make the stocks and sauces that are essentials in Chef Keller’s restaurant kitchens.

Chef Keller presents comprehensive demonstrations and explains everything very well. He expresses a quality that transcends cooking. The knowledge packed into this Masterclass is simply amazing.

I may never be a "great" cook, but I certainly have more patience to help me get there.

It has taught me the correct techniques and procedures and improved my quality and presentation. I was already cooking fairly well, but this has elevated my dishes to a whole new level. Thank you Chef Keller!

Thank you Chef Keller for this great learning opportunity. You have a great teaching technic where explanations are clear and concise. Thanks to you I have elevated my cooking technics to the next level.

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.
