I love Thomas Keller and was happy to take the class. I learned very valuable techniques and improved my skills through this class. I am sad the class is over. I feel there is much more we can learn from him still.

A better way of cooking vegetables and to look for ways to add that little extra finesse to my dishes. Bravo chef, bravo.

This class was very helpful for me in improving my knowledge about the basic techniques to work in a kitchen. Thanks Chef.Keller for that beautiful stream of knowledge that you have passed on.

It has helped me to understand the cooking processes better. I have learned the basic cooking techniques necessary to make a fabulous meal. And to present each dish as a work of art.

So much fun! I did mine with some micro lemon balm, raspberry purée, blackberries and blueberries

So much to learn . These videos are knowledge packed! I’ve seen Gordon and wolf but these videos I’ll rewatch a few times before moving on. Thank you for the class Tom

Great script and visuals. Good demonstration and example of 'adding finesse' by using wild strawberries and puree and creme Anglaise to push the dish even farther into 'special' territory. Best of all, I can do something very like this at home.

What are the proportions in grams / number of eggs etc? Where can I find those?

Mine turned out a little beige, maybe because i used the brown sugar, maybe i burned it a little honestly, i hated meringues before, as they're generally dry, like eating a mix of paper and plastic, but this recipe changed my mind!

For some reason, mine turned out incredibly sweet. Way, way too sweet. Anyone else have that problem? It *looked* great, but it tasted almost tooth-achingly sweet. Maybe I'll reduce the sugar a bit next time. To be fair, I halved the recipe, but I halved everything so it should have been fine.


Romantic sweetness overload! What a wonderful way to say "I love you" to your favorite beau! Thank you Chef Keller!

I will make this for new years dinner and wondered if anybody knows if i can make the meringue beforehand (in the morning fx) and just mix it with the berries and decorate before serving?

So I reduced the sugar and am cooking at high altitude but mine looked very brown and overdone at 40 minutes 😦

What happens with the vanilla bean? The recipe mentions adding it to the mixture and it looks like it is in there at the beginning of the video, but I don't see it ever being strained out?
