Thomas Keller is a very humble chef, I really enjoyed the lessons!

Really appreciated this. I learned a lot from this class, and I look forward to sharing these skills with the people around me. Thanks TK.

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?

I do not use recipes and am a decent home cook/chef who prides myself in making excellent food for my family. I also love working with new tools while sticking to the old ones. I found this part of the class to welcome those who may have a hindrance to cooking. Hopefully, the next lessons will be exciting.

I was always a pretty decent home cook who went out to an excellent restaurant if I was in the mood for something extraordinary. Now that I am retired I can't afford to do that. I can afford some excellent cookbooks and I do have the time to learn, As a result, I have purchased four of Chef Keller's cookbooks and, with the help of this class, look forward to improving on my execution.


Can't wait to get started. Getting my kitchen unpacked and cleaned up, almost ready to go. I'm getting rid of my junk food and I'm eager to re-learn how to cook (and learn a ton of new skills so I keep enjoying it and experimenting. I've never had my own kitchen before where I really could do that, but now I'm gonna prep myself for success.

always wanted to learn more about cooking specially the fundamentals of french cooking, and of all courses online chef Keller is the only one teaching the fundamentals and techniques.

Chef Keller is an amazing chef and I am also impressed with how humble he appears to be. He seems to truly enjoy what he is doing and wants us to enjoy it too! I agree with Chef Keller that technique is important. I like to make something that resonates with me and follow the recipe exactly first, then I start to explore from there. More or less of something, an addition or substitution of a vegetable. I am so excited to learn more about how to make food amazing and to make amazing food. Practice, practice, practice.
