World-renowned chef Keller serves up stories from the front line of fine dining. The owner of such celebrated restaurants as the French Laundry, Bouchon, Per Se and Ad Hoc, Keller penned the award-winning The French Laundry and Bouchon cookbooks, as well as Under Pressure, on sous vide cooking, and Ad Hoc at Home. In 2001, he was named “America’s Best Chef” by Time Magazine. In 2003, Johnson & Wales University awarded him the honorary degree of Doctor of Culinary Arts for his contributions to the industry. His accolades include consecutive "Best Chef" awards from the James Beard Foundation and "Chef of the Year" by the Culinary Institute of America. He is the only American-born chef to hold multiple three-star ratings by the Michelin Guide. Don’t miss a rare opportunity to hear from this modern kitchen master.
