Last year, award-winning Thomas Keller of Bouchon Bakery began teaching cooking techniques in a 36-lesson course for online series MasterClass. In the series, Keller demonstrated how to master the fundamentals of cooking. Viewers learned about handling kitchen tools, preparing foundational ingredients (like vegetables, eggs, and pasta), and the science behind cooking.

Earlier today, it was announced that Keller will return for a new course through MasterClass. Building on the fundamental techniques from his first two classes, he will focus on classic desserts, such as apple pie and lemon tart. The class will also showcase preparations for fresh seafood and how sous vide cooking can be done at home.

“It’s no surprise that Chef Keller has multiple three-star Michelin ratings given his attention to detail, precision and care,” says David Rogier, co-founder and CEO of MasterClass. “We’re so happy to have him back for his third MasterClass. Our members are going to love learning how to make his apple pie for the holidays.”

Chef Keller's third MasterClass includes 17 lessons and covers:

  • Salmon and Spinach
  • Dover Sole with Pommes Château
  • Monkfish Tail with Beurre Rouge
  • Salt-Baked Branzino with Fennel and Red Pepper Vinaigrette
  • Butter-Poached Lobster with Macaroni and Cheese
  • Shrimp Scampi
  • Lobster Boil
  • Getting Started with Sous Vide Cooking
  • Sous Vide Carrots, Asparagus and Fennel
  • Sous Vide Turbot
  • Simplified Sous Vide Salmon
  • Chocolate Pots de Crème
  • Lemon Tart with Pine Nut Crust
  • Apple Pie

“In my third MasterClass, I focus on a variety of seafood from pan-roasted monkfish to sautéed salmon and a few of my favorite classic desserts,” says Chef Keller. “The class has something for everyone, including the fundamentals of sous vide cooking, and my hope is that students of any level will walk away with knowledge and skills for what can be achieved at home.”
