Fundamental techniques. Fantastic food.

Thomas Keller has won more Michelin stars than any chef in America. In his first online cooking class, the founder of The French Laundry and Per Se teaches you the underlying techniques of making great food so you can go beyond the cookbook. Learn how to confit vegetables, poach perfect eggs, make hand-shaped pasta, and bring Michelin star-quality meals to your kitchen.


Students give MasterClass an average rating of 4.7 out of 5 stars.

This was a lot of great content! Overall fantastic, my only piece of feedback is that it would have been nice to go just slightly more into techniques in some portions of the lessons, e.g. knife skills, any contamination risk in pickling, etc.

The class was helpful for me I learned a lot of techniques and tips which I didn't know before . Thank you Mr Thomas Keller for sharing and teaching me how to be a better cook.

Really enjoyed Thomas Keller's Master Class. Learned some new techniques that will be fun to try with family and friends. For me some of the introductory material was a bit basic, but I can see why it was included. The Chef's final comments about mentoring and the French Laundry's evolution and future were very inspirational, and apply to so many more businesses than just restaurants. Class act.

It was a wonderful class by a great teacher, who chose his words carefully. I learned about my kitchen but also management philosophies and ideas wirth sharing. Thank you Chef!

I really enjoy Thomas's total explanation of what he is teaching in regard to the different ways for cook many different vegetables in this lesson....he is a true Master at what he does....I am finding I am intrigued with all the different cooking techniques. Am totally enjoying and learning so so so much from him...Onward!!! ***** star lessons!

I really enjoy that Chef Keller freely gives information as though he were actually talking to you as a young chef, minus the yelling. As a culinary school graduate I appreciate everything he's said so far because a lot of things weren't taught to me in school.

Glad you introduced science. Didn’t know the gas in the vegetable diminishes the color

The subtitles are only in Spanish and I can’t understand some of the words he’s using especially when he borrows words from other languages.

Thomas Keller comes across as a wonderful teacher- He has chosen his topics very carefully and I am covering lesson after lesson with the same intensity of interest and curiosity without getting tired of the lessons. I am very happy that I chose to take his classes.

I'm not a beginner in the culinary world, but my jaw consistently drops in amazement at listening to Thomas Keller teach and speak. This man is incredible, and from the start the knowledge he conveys is indomitable. Goodness.

I adore his upbeat message and encouragement. One of the world's best chefs and he speaks like we are his peers

Wow what a great presentation I personally really like the way that hes just presenting all the different techniques to prepare vegetables with some background. Maybe its because I have a background in science (learning about theory and terminology before I go to lab). I understand if people think its too much but I believe its really important to lay a strong foundation and to be as concise as possible.

Is he actually going to teach anything or just talk about what we are going to talk about?
