A really good introductory class to cooking. Experienced cooks will be familiar with concepts but it always good to revisit the basics.

Found it an eye-opener to the error of my ways, and although my cooking passion covers anything between Paris and Saigon, going in both directions, the techniques and tips learnt extend into a wider range of application than French cooking alone. Enjoyed it thoroughly, in the technical as well as human sense - Chef Keller's humility and integrity shine out! Thank you.

The whole concept of "finess" and adding "refinement " to the meals I prepare will stick with me for ever.

I trained as a chef in culinary school when I was 30 and well onto another career. I love to cook at home and for guests. Thomas Keller has been an inspiration of mine for several decades and I've had the pleasure of dining at many of his restaurant. Amazing chef and The French Laundry still is my favorite.

Too much time instructing on making pasta from scratch. Maybe the sauce section is upcoming? I'm certain it is superior, but how many, other than the sweet Italian lady, will opt for scratch pasta vs Publix?

At my age and with my temperament, I will never even attempt most of Chef Keller's recipes. But damn, I'm not sure I have ever seen anyone so in love with their vocation. It's fabulous to see how much enjoyment can be gained from what you love doing. If this was a true classroom, highest marks ever to professor Keller.

This was simply one of the most enjoyable cooking classes I've taken. Today I made my first batch of fresh pasta dough with this recipe. Can't wait for tomorrow when it's ready for me to play.

Wonderful lesson. Calm and peaceful delivery. I would have liked to see the way he would handle larger portions... I would never cook like that for a portion for one... and I think there would be value in seeing him manage the larger amounts...

Amazing! I just wish that there was a way to purchase some of the tools he uses. Who makes it and where can you buy it. The meat/pasta fork is an example. Thanks, Alex

Worked out well, though I didn’t take Chef’s advice and let them dry fully after cutting--I cooked them when they were still quite fresh. I did them in a Bolognese a la Marcella Hazan. They were very light and delicious but lacked that al dente resistance. Any tips on effective drying? I’ve had difficulty in the past where they either get extraordinarily brittle or I’ve put them in nests, they dry unevenly and get moldy.

once again: you've let it partially dry... so you're still making all this with relatively fresh pasta? how do you batch it and cut it and make it? what is pasta making storage look like??????

A fellow student

Wowza! I appreciate that I don’t need more equipment. I look forward to trying.

Dried pasta is easier to cook but the elegance of fresh is unbeatable. Silky and light. It just takes a bit more attention. Also maybe you have to work a bit faster. I love that Chef lands on his feet no matter what and always makes the best of any situation. I'd love some in depth pasta dishes both dried and fresh. Bravo!

TK's pasta is like no other. The many eggs add a richness mine was lacking. My Nonni taught me how to make pasta at a young age. I'm Italian. I've had several pasta making parties which are a lot of fun. What I didn't realize was that the dried pasta is much easier to cook. I've enjoyed the pasta classes.
