Will go back to this again and again. Bought a whole bunch of new tools because it just made sense.

Wow, I loved this Masterclass and I'm moved by how respectful, poised and well spoken Thomas Keller has been. I 100% will use these cooking techniques in my every day life and feel changed for the better. Thank you!

As I did with the other 2 master classes I have attended, I have to go again and again through it to get a better feeling of it. It has beena pleasure and I hope that another series of TK class with come soon. thanks

Thomas Keller is without match as an instructor!

Thank you chef Keller! I really appreciate this class, very much! It allows me to understand a lot of the principles in meal preparation so that I can freely prepare my meals instead of blindly following recipes. You have instilled in me a fundemental understanding of the basics! You are clear, knowledgeable and calm. That sets a very good example to me!

Thank you Chef Keller. Your courses are exceptional. Excellent video and sound quality so that all the skills and techniques are clearly demonstrated and effective at passing on the skills and philosophy of a Master Chef. I truly appreciate the level of detail in your descriptions which encouraged me pay attention to the transformations and elevate my techniques. You do inspire me to be more patient and to have confidence that with practice and persistence I can master these skills and recipes. This has renewed my enthusiasm and dedication to becoming a better home cook. My friends are thoroughly enjoying gathering to enjoy the results of all this practise. I am passing along a favourite comment. My “failures” are better than anything I used to serve! No shortage of willing taste testers. As a single retired professional I finally have time to really learn to cook and this platform is fantastic. I recently moved to central Vancouver Island, an area called Comox Valley surrounded by organic growers and ethical pasture raised stock and knowledgeable producers. I feel I am now doing justice to the high quality ingredients available here. Excellent Set of courses Highly Recommended.

Thank you Chef Thomas Keller, I started with your second class and have just finished this class. I have learned so much and am excited to make these recipes as much as I was excited to enter this course. Thank you.

Soooo much I have learned in this class! Amazing, Chef TK! So humble, knowledgeable and overall one of the best cooking classes on this site!!

My husband and I have enjoyed this course immensely. We loved the setting the neatness and TK, demeanour and explanations. We have had great fun applying what we have learned in our cooking. It has taken our cooking to a new level. Refining is what comes to mind. Thank You.

Michael M.

I can't compliment this course enough. The carrots and the omelette is worth the price of admission alone but let's be frank, we're learning far more than recipes and techniques here. Thank you! -mM
