Great class, to understand the fundamental techniques behind cooking. Chef Keller is an amazing instructor. His philosophy for cooking also applies to life in general.

I could not have enjoyed these classes more. I’ve long respected the work of Chef Keller but now I love him. His teaching, demeanor, philosophy, etc. are all extraordinary. Thank you, Chef, for sharing so much with us. And thank you, Masterclass, for enabling this experience.

This is a great course for learning the fundamentals from a true master. The lessons encompass the tools and techniques necessary.

The appealing aspect of Thomas Keller's class is that he wants to teach skills, not recipes. This is exactly the kind of class I have been looking for

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??????

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.

I am learning so much about the art of cooking I am so happy that I took this class. I love the set up of the kitchen in the class also. I think the lessons are broken up nicely. I wouldn't want to see all the pastas done in one lesson because I would get confused...I like each lesson titled and divided up. Great work Chef Keller!

Jeff K.

The egg to flour ratio seems much higher in this recipe than those I've learned from Italians. Thoughts?

Learning cooking techniques from Chef Keller has made a difference in how I approach cooking and enabled me to expand my limited repertoire of recipes. How long will these 36 lessons be available to rewatch? Will there be a another series of MasterClasses from Chef Keller?

I had no idea all this work went into preparing pasta in Italian kitchens all over the globe. It was a fascinating process to learn - not that I will be making it! - but that, I am very ignorant on pasta dishes. So, once I can appreciate how to make the best of it (blanche first!), all the power to me. Great lesson.

I think there is a little too much time in this class on making pasta. One lesson would have been enough for me. But I've made pasta for years....Like the tip on preparing the garlic....
