As a follow-up to his first MasterClass, Chef Thomas Keller devotes his second cooking class to beef, duck, chicken, pork, and veal, and the techniques he uses to prepare them. Learn to sauté, pan and oven roast, braise, fry, and grill, and how to select the best cut of meat for each technique with confidence. Then, learn to make the stocks and sauces that are essentials in Chef Keller’s restaurant kitchens.


Students give MasterClass an average rating of 4.7 out of 5 stars.

Chef Keller's Meat Masterclass has been tremendously helpful in expanding my understanding of how to prepare and make meat, stocks and sauces. He is very precise and detail orientated which makes it very easy to follow and try to execute yourself.

Impeccable technique, Chef Keller exemplifies what he teaches by demonstrating it in his movements. He has a very patient demeanor which makes the lessons all the more interesting. I wish many of his techniques were part of my own culinary school education. I learned quite a but by Chef Keller's example. Well worth the money!

I enjoyed the lessons and brought back for me many of the lesson I learned in Culinary school

Thomas Keller is the best teacher I have ever stumbled upon. I am very thankful that he agreed to do two Masterclasses. Hopefully there will be a third!

Delicious! Does anyone know how long these will last in the fridge after making them?

Thank you for mentioning that chow chow can go with fish. It will be a perfect meal to fix for my mother I have been waiting for this lesson. I look forward to making a variety of sauces.

Chef! :) lovely but the Vierge is 90% our Bruschetta classic dressing. The Chef must have been traveling to Italy and got some inspiration from our simple bruschetta. Happy days:)


I love Chef Keller's happy energy! Who knew how excited we can be with these sauces. He's given me an entirely different (happy) perspective! And as always, my mouth is yearning for the taste of those flavors!


What a powerful chapter. Those sauces are just gorgeous. I especially loved the Chow Chow. It's very pastel look with the delicate mustard seeds was beautiful. I could every one of those sauces and use them on several different applications. What a wonderful chapter.

Wondering if you can't put anchovies in the emulsified vinaigrette to give it more of a Caesar Salad Dressing feel??
