Thomas Keller was amazing. I learned a few tricks that I didn't recieve in Culinary School. I look forward to more of his classes.

Apparently it's just a class about food, in the end you can see the human quality of the Chef, which becomes a class about your life to.

Love it, really builds the foundation of my cooking technique.

I have a background in culinary arts so much of what I see is familiar, but different. What I see and appreciate is refinement, working clean, patience, respect, enhanced technique. I worked with some wonderful chefs and actually earned the title of Chef so being able to see someone with the level of expertise as Thomas Keller is so gratifying. What a joy to watch.



Good introduction. As Chef Keller says recipes are just a guide. If we master the techniques through practice, we can create consistent quality of food and even innovate with our original recipes.

Thoroughly enjoyed his beginning video. Every step made perfect sense. I hope to go further with a better understanding and to make mistakes to learn from.

A well explained video by the chef and one of the things that stood out for me was the need to spend more money on ingredients and get better quality. At the end of the day, I believe that we should care about what we eat and especially what we give others to eat.

Looking forward to learning and sharing with my children the need for good cooking skills..... for self-nourishment and quality time with friends and family...

I'm looking forward to learning about various cooking techniques and I hope I will perfect my existing skills.


After looking at the workbook I feel really nervous but I will see what I can learn to improve my cooking. I always love to learn the basics at least.

Chef Keller seems very calm and easy going. I believe that this class will be very helpful in getting me the tips and tricks to exceed in my cooking. I am motivated to start on the hands on stuff and would like to see where it goes.

Maria M.

I love the class , and they are very well explained, I want to learn all the techniques and apply them in my recipes for my family.
