Thomas Keller is a class act! I loved the section on pasta making, he gave helpful descriptions of what to look for in the texture of the dough rather than just putting together a recipe that may not work in every climate. I liked how he consistently taught what to look for in terms of feel and sound and smell!

Will go back to this again and again. Bought a whole bunch of new tools because it just made sense.

well, I'm a professional cook, and I know and aply most of the techniques expained in this class, but details are so important and I've been really inspired. Learning from a true Master as Chef Keller is really improoved my vision!

I am a professional cook. This was very informative in technique and the love of cooking. Treating the food with respect and elevating each ingredient. I was left wanting more. Thanks

Hello. Big thanks to Chef Thomas Keller for a wonderful Masterclass. I have tried every part. It has been rewarding and instructive. However, I had a problem. It was when I was at work with the Agnolotti. When I pushed the filling to create the small pillows, the pasta dough burst. Why? Should I put in more milk or olive oil in the dough? It was not elastic.

I really enjoyed the lessons I was able to get to play, but this one and others just show a spiraling circle when I click on them. There's no apparent way to report this type of technical glitch through the MAsterclass website and it's been this way for a couple of days....

I loved this lesson. So creative and the end result is so appetizing. Must try this recipe. Not sure with my saute skills for flipping the gnocci. I'll be spending a lot of time on the floor picking up the gnocci!

Truly inspiring... I don't know how to cook at all and yet I have this urge to start working on it today. Thank you for showing me how fun it could be :-)

Mr. Keller 6 disciplines of Success = UNIVERSAL for Success.... You can use it also at your worklife or in a sporting discipline ... Try to polish the diamond is not easy, but with these 6 disciplines, which also mean hard work but also fun, you'll manage it ... Cooking is great & cooking like the masters is topsport!

I particularly appreciated your discussion on repetition. I need to continue the practice.

Loved this class. I've glazed carrots for the first time today and made the fabulous beet salad. I am so looking forward to using everything I've learned. One of my favorite things was the suggestion to "declutter" the kitchen. I got rid of the drawer full of pan lids and bought the universal lids. Also got rid of every single gadget. I had a box full and most had never been used, or only used once.
