Che Keller is an amazing chef. He seems humble and kind. He is the type of leader that you want to work for, learn from, and follow.

This class has really helped me to FOCUS on simple techniques and recipes to build on. Persistence, patience, organization, and a bit of fastidiousness separate Chef Keller’s unique approach.

The best of the chefs offered here. They all inspire and teach, but I learned much more from Chef Keller. Please offer more with him teaching.

This was a lot of great content! Overall fantastic, my only piece of feedback is that it would have been nice to go just slightly more into techniques in some portions of the lessons, e.g. knife skills, any contamination risk in pickling, etc.

Excellent teaching moment with the Parmesan crisp and the self reflection. It's the commitment to continued learning the defines excellence.

First time making homemade pasta. We would never have tried making it if it wasn't for this class and how easy Chef Keller made it look! Turned out above all our expectations. Yum!

How does TK get that “tented” shape to the parm crisp at the end of the video? Anyone know?

Shirl T.

I love this and I can't wait to try it out. Just wondering if you have to use that much butter? It seems a lot for one portion...

Will the pasta get cooked if only halfway into the liquid ? It was my understanding that the pasta has to be always fully immersed to get properly cooked.

I LOVE how he handled the teaching moment with the Parmesan Crisp. Chef Keller is an excellent teacher!

Great lesson! And a good reminder to make mistakes work in a meal. But, speaking as a vegetarian, I can substitute vegetable broth for the chicken. But I struggle to find the smoky savory substitute for bacon. Ideas?

Amazing lesson, one of my favs so far. I'm gonna make this recipe next Friday as a wedding anniversary gift for my husband, he gave me this course as a gift and now I'll have the chance to retribute it. Looking forward to cooking, will post pics here later! <3

A terrific, very manageable recipe! Set the Marcato Atlas pasta machine at #6 max for the dough. I recommend in addition to the vinegar, a little lemon zest for additional acid and to balance the richness of the butter sauce. I used a chunky diced pancetta instead of regular American bacon.

Amazing!! What a nice mixture of flavors!! But.... In my family I have to make plenty of it! Thank you for the mouthful experiences!!
