Excellent! Have learned so much from Chef Keller, especially his attention to detail, using his senses, and patience. Would love to have more lessons from Chef Keller. Thank You for this opportunity to understand what goes on in his brain as he is cooking!!!!

Chef Keller's classes have been my favorite by far! He is easy to connect with and an exceptional teacher to learn from. Focusing on the techniques and not recipes is the best learning method for cooking I've experienced and has helped my overall understanding of cooking concepts that I can apply to anything in the kitchen. I'd love to see more classes from him!

Thomas Keller is a great teacher. He would be an excellent professor...he knows how to teach people...he may not even realize this. I love his pace, voice, rythm etc. I learned a lot. Thank you Master Class!

Yes. I have learned so much cooking techniques from Thomas Keller. Watching him demonstrating the skills as if having a literature class. I am very grateful to get this incredible chance to learn online with my own time. Looking forward to more lessons from Thomas Keller.

And if im kinda scared to burn my house, would it also taste the same good if i didn't use the torch?

I bought an incredible new oven and am getting to know it. Followed Chef Keller’s guidance and the roast came out almost perfect - only human error got in the way. Slow roasting is the way to go and the Pureed Potatoes are like crack!!

Does using the blow torch just as it is deliver better results than using a Searzall?

A fellow student

Thomas Keller explaining slow cooking with yellow goggles while casually blowtorching a rib roast has a surreal quality to it.

A normal blow torch will blow out when you invert it because the liquid runs down the tube. There is a flexible hose they sell for a bernzomatic blow torch to go between the bottle and the head. So you can keep the bottle below the head and aim the blowtorch head at any angle. I use a blowtorch a lot when searing meat cooked sous vide.

without a torch, can't you do the same thing searing on a grill, then bring into oven?

A fellow student

Made this tonight, the torch was a nice way to sear it and the meat turned out amazing. Especially the bones! Nice and simple, but absolutely delicious

Beautiful prime rib! I've noticed in several lessons Chef will touch the protein, then dip his fingers in his salt bowl without washing. Is it just me or should contamination be a concern?

Tiffany P.

Chef Keller used the blow torch, what if I do not have one, can I substitute by cooking in the oven at 500 for browning then reduce to the slow cook temperature?

A fellow student

If I wanted to make this well done, at what temperature and for how long would I cook the prime rib?
