so glad that at 60 I'm finally learning proper technical skills!

Wonderful. I learned so much about making my favorite foods.

Thomas Keller is a great teacher. I tried his gnocchi and it was pillowy and not so scary. I will try some of the meats.

to use all of your senses to really stir in each ingredient that you add.

Lessons are very detailed and thorough. I can't wait to do more cooking and practice what I have learned from you. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and skills. You are an inspiration...


Chef Keller doesn't know it yet but he's my husband... I was introduced to him once in Las Vegas where he was practicing for the Bocuse d'Or with Daniel Boulud and Gavin Kaysen (I'm from MN!) and their teams. He touched my arm and I haven't washed it since. Anyway. I signed up for another year of MC when I saw new courses from Chef Keller. Thank you!

A little confused about suggestion to do all measurements by weight with small amounts I’m always afraid some is left in container after weighing. Any suggestions Gordon. Love the class


I have taken your "be patient and persistent" to heart. You are an amazing master with your techniques, your attention to detail and making it real for those of us who love to cook at home. Thank you SO much. We have dined at the French Laundry and now know all that goes into the appreciation, love, and joy you have for excellence.

I'm uncomfortable posting this potentially silly question, but here it goes....Chef Keller (and other professional chefs) "shuffle" their cookware back and forth on the stove instead of stirring with a spoon so as not to damage the food. I'm hesitant to shuffle my cookware for fear of scratching them. I've invested in quality cookware and would like them to last a long time. I realize I'm the scratches are on the underside which doesn't come in contact with food, but still...Am I alone on this? Thanks!
