Thomas Keller is one of the best chefs in the world. I am really proud of being his student by taking these master classes!

Wonderful. I wanted to learn the basics and this masterclass did it wonderfully. I really wanted to learn techniques so I can apply them to improve my fit diet. There is adaptation, experimentation and creativity to add to this so it's challenging but after Thomas' Masterclass I'm quite confident to do try and evolve.

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

I was inspired when I tasted Thomas Keller's exquisite creations at Per Se a few years ago. Watching his MasterClass took me into the next level of inspiration. Thank you kindly.

Today I tried the simple version of scrambled eggs and it was amazing, so creamy and flavorful. Perfect! Thanks for the tips!

Great! The french way was a good variation. If we are adding veggies like onions tomatoes and mushrooms would you saute them and then add them?

Pepper tree leaves , garlic vine and batis maritima. Home grown free range eggs . Though I used ghee and tried butter. Liked the ghee more . Infused the herbs with this fat turned out better


the method was very interesting, I love scrambled eggs and have made them since i was a kid (some huge failures but my dad never minded.) Usually we would whisk eggs and a splash of milk (or cream) with a 1/4 tsp of wholegrain mustard and then cook low and slow. I never would have thought of adding it towards the end as Chef Keller did with creme fraiche. My husband prefers his scrambled egg set and not wet (closer to omelette) and i like mine wet ( not overcooked and watery)

M.F.K. Fisher would approve. I remember reading, in one of her books years ago, her advice on scrambling eggs, which is very similar to Chef Keller's. She advised low and slow and gentle and that it should take a very long time (as I recall) and that you will be rewarded , greatly, for your efforts...

My completed breakfast with French styled eggs, peeled tomatoes etc I topped the eggs with truffle oil, Maldon salt and 5 spice pepper.

Just tried to make the french version of this for breakfast and it was a disaster. Ended up in the bin. Eggs I think were under cooked. Possibly only by a minute but horrid runny texture, raw taste and very rich. will try again tomorrow. Maybe not one for my repertoire.

Would be nice to have the <FRENCH SPEECH> written out in the subtitles. I went to them to figure out what he said, and I speak some French!

Love these basic lessons. One little hint I learned from an egg producer is when you try to retrieve a small piece of shell from your bowl use one of your shell halves to scoop it out. Easy.

These eggs were very good, but I preferred Gordon Ramsay's eggs. Technique was similar to the French style Mr. Keller showed.
