It was a great opportunity to learn the basics of cooking from chef Thomas Keller. The classes not only showed me the technical skills to accomplish the best result in the kitchen through the demos but also his philosophy of cooking, valuable advice, and beyond.

We cook to nurture our loved ones, cannot agree more, and we find joy and fulfillment in doing so. Love it as much as Alice's masterclass.

I have learned incredible techniques and a sense of excellence and respect for the ingredients and the process. This course from start to finish is a treasure. I am so thankful.

Outstanding course taught by Thomas, who you can tell genuinely cares. Looking forward to his second course.

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.

Hello guys! I check the pdf for more example of glazing vegetable. Its says there is a list of other vegetables but i don´t know where is it, does somebody know where is the list of vegetables?

So simple and beautiful. My pan is wider than the one used in the lesson so I didn’t quite cover the carrots with water. I just paid attention to what was happening and achieved a result on my first try!

I loved it! I learned so much. Be gentle, be attentive, be careful and you will get great results!


I've tried a variation on this using those "baby" carrots that are about 2-3 inches long. They're already peeled right out of the bag and you don't have to cut them---a nice time-saver, and sometimes that's the only kind of carrot we have in the fridge. Just increase the cooking time a little bit and check for doneness.
