Thomas Keller has inspired me and I am already practicing what I learned from him. He is amazing!

I never knew food can be so much fun to make!! This was an amazing class!!

I really enjoyed the way Mr. Keller taught the class and the different methods used to cook with. You can feel his passion for what he does.

I’m always learning and here was French potato purée properly presented. Thank you.

We're halfway through the course and really enjoying it - we've learned so much! We hope you can pass on a suggestion to Thomas Keller as well- in this day and age preserving nature and the planet is an important goal. We think it's Mr. Keller's as well. Mr. Keller uses parchment paper in many sessions just to clean up and throw away. This makes me cringe twice: parchment paper just goes into the landfill, can't we clean without it? and also, any organic material in the paper that goes into landfill will never decompose without oxygen. As a role model, Mr. Keller can make a valuable impact by finding new and sustainable ways to cook! Thank you! :)


Recipes are just a tool for an idea for something. A recipe for Apple Pie for example: It may only tell you the quantity of apples and spiced, but as cooks, we must know that different apples can have different properties, such as the ability to hold shape when baking, and the sweetness/tartness of the individual species of apple, and likewise the spices: some apples need a little less sugar.

I watched the first 17 lessons, I guess out of order but I do appreciate Thomas Keller's smooth and diligent techniques and makes it simplified for the home chef. His organization comes across as a way to handle my kitchen, not running around trying to find items and checking my pantry over and over. I did not know Thomas Keller prior to this series and I am totally hooked. Thank you.

I had to work four jobs to bring up my children. As a result of this my boys a better cooks than I am. Perhaps with the completion of this course, I can surprise them for a change.

I like Chef Thomas Keller so much but I'm disappointed that you don't have any asian chef in the culinary arts classes. Are you planning to add Asian Cuisine classes soon?
