JC100 Tribute: Thomas Keller

This post is part of a weekly series celebrating the extraordinary legacy of Julia Child leading up to what would have been her 100th birthday on August 15, 2012.

Thomas Keller is one of the premier chefs in the world. He is the only American chef to have been awarded simultaneous three star Michelin ratings for two different restaurants, French Laundry in Napa Valley and Per Se in New York City. What with Thomas Keller having achieved the industry’s top honour, one wouldn’t think that anything could intimidate the fabled chef. But he readily admits to Wine Spectator magazine that he and his staff were “nervous wrecks” when it came to cooking for Julia Child, who would often chill out in the kitchen of the French Laundry before eating her meal.
In the three videos below, Thomas Keller talks about the incredible culinary legacy left behind by Julia Child and the most important lesson he was able to learn from her. Hope you enjoy!
