Wonderful "Essentials" class to start with. I hope Chef Keller makes a series of these classes, taking us further into different ingredients, refining cooking techniques, novel sauces, and other recipes. Would love to see him delve into seafood and meats, and of course desserts. His teaching style, precision, and attention to detail are very inspiring.

Really great to watch Mr. Keller work. Thanks for taking the time to offer this class.

I picked up several tips and tricks, however seemingly small, that will help me in the kitchen. I tried to find at least one in each segment.

Really enjoyed these classes so far. From using the proper tools to essential techniques. Thank you!

I learned more in a day of viewing Chef Keller's egg techniques than I acquired in a lifetime of cooking. Excellent!

These look so good, and such a great lesson. My only gripe - herbs are pronounced with an 'h' ;)

i just made the omelette and it came out so perfect. i was so proud nd it tasted delicious, too. This really IS a MASTERclass. so much in there and i am excited to try everything out, since i have two weeks of vacation and nowhere to go (thanks to corona).

I've been researching for so long trying to find a good fluffy omelet recipe that didn't result in that burnt taste from overcooking it on the stove... Keller's recipe is exactly what I was looking for! I tried it out this morning and was really pleased with the outcome! I added sauteed spinach, shiitake mushrooms, green onions, and crumbled goat cheese for the filling. Topped with chopped parsley and green onions (although chives would be preferred). Loved it! :)

Love this! Have never seen an omelet cooked this way, I alway try the magic flip > scrambled eggs format.

This is a different way on how I approach an omelet. I never put it in the oven and cover the pan instead to get some inside cooking. In the end, instead of rolling it, I try to seal it. But this one is a wonderful alternative and I really love how it looks!

I did my Omelet perfectly! Just instead of the cream as a filling I use as the filling a Ricotta I had made before and add some chives inside as well as salt and pepper. The oven is an Amazing technique!

This lesson worked immediately!!! I finally know how to make an omelet and this is something that has eluded me for my entire life! Finishing omelets in the oven in a revelation!!!! THANK YOU!!!! <3

I never thought about baking an omelet, but actually it makes SO much sense. You dont need to stir it or move it around to get in cooked evenly and it looks stunning when it rolls up. Definitely worth the effort to fire up the oven at at this low temperature even cheaper cook ware without a metal handle can be used for cooking this. Great!!!

No real talent required here- misses the true value of TECHNIQUE and the confirmation of SKILL. Would love to see Chef Keller's aggressive pan technique versus the dainty approach offered here.
