Excellent! I love every bit of your lessons and I learned tremendously from all 3 of your classes. Thank you for being a great teacher ^^

I wanted to go through the class first without any reviews of the workbook. I found it to be wonderfully done. His style his patience his ways of explaining was excellent. I wil now go back thorugh the class and participate with the workbooks and everything else. Thank you This was fantastic.

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.

I have learned many great techniques and I look forward to using them again and again in the future.

In the introduction to this lesson Glazing: Carrots, Chef Thomas Keller refers to another recipe from his Ad Hoc at Home cookbook....Honey-Glazed Cipollini Onions. It was hard to find the little Cipollini Onions, come to find out they are very seasonal, but the good thing was I only had to wait a couple of weeks and they were in season. These little onions are different than Pearl Onions. They are larger, skinnier and's like a Texas Sweet Onion meets Pearl Onion! After completing the lesson Glazing Carrots, Glazing the Cipollini Onions turned out perfect. The flavor was a caramelized flavor that enhanced the sweetness of the little onion.

The Glazed Carrots were the best we've ever eaten! I used smaller Farmer's Market carrots and followed the instructions and they were so naturally sweet, tender, and so delicious! We will definitely eat these carrots all the time!

Can I get the recipe? Because I don’t know the exact amount of ingredients.


Why add salt at the end versus at the beginning? Season as you go.... wouldn't the seasoning penetrate further into the carrot at the beginning vs. just being on the outside at the end?

Finally tried this recipe last night and it turned out great. I think these lessons are great and do a wonderful job of keeping the techniques approachable. Cooked carrots aren’t something i usually enjoy, but this was so easy and created a delicious result!

Very cool! One question I have is if you're doing this in larger quantities, for example at your restaurants, would you do this in larger pans, several different pans, or is there another way to make larger quantities at a time?

I think the lessons are fantastic, but I'm not impressed with the website. Often in the middle of a class, another class will begin and when I try to go back to my original class, nothing happens. I also seemed to end up being enrolled on a course that I didn't subscribe to. If you could endeavour to sort out all these problems, that would be great!

My mum always uses bicarbonate soda to keep the veg green but I always say that it takes the vitamins out of the veg so how do you keep the freshness and not the dull washed out limp green look

The introduction to kitchen cookware and knife and techniques are very informative . It’s never to late to learn how to cook.

I loved it. I have cooked on a survival level for years...55 to be exact and now I am trying to refine things a bit. My husband was wildly enthusiastic about the carrots which were served as an h'orderve. No way could I coordinate this with a meal. I have a bandaid on my thumb, but I feel wildly enthusiastic.
