MasterClass expands culinary curriculum with the second class from Chef Keller on cooking techniques
SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — MasterClass, the online education company that enables anyone to learn from the best in the world, announced today that Chef Thomas Keller will offer his second online cooking class exclusively through its platform. In his newest class, Chef Keller builds on the foundations of his first class, teaching students techniques for cooking meats, stocks, and sauces — such as pork shoulder à la Matignon, red wine braised short ribs, and his signature oven-roasted whole chicken. Chef Keller’s class is now available at www.masterclass.com/tk2. Enrollment for the class is $90 for lifetime access, or $180 per year for the All-Access Pass, which grants unlimited access to all new and existing classes.
“My hope for my second class is that students gain the skills, knowledge, and most importantly, the confidence to become the cook that they want to be,” said Chef Keller. “In this class, I share a wide range of techniques to cook meat dishes and detail how to make stocks and sauces to round out each dish.”
In his second MasterClass, Chef Keller will introduce new techniques to cook with chicken, duck, pork, and beef to build complete meals for the holidays, a dinner party, or any occasion. Students will learn the fundamentals of cooking proteins — including how to select the best grades and cuts for different dishes — to help them to cook with confidence and precision, without relying on a recipe. Chef Keller will teach students the techniques to cook some of his most beloved dishes, such as his signature fried chicken and pan roasted Côte de Boeuf. Students will also learn to make stocks and sauces from scratch, including the French mother sauce chicken velouté, as well as sauces suprême, allemande, and albufera. Chef Keller’s MasterClass series continues to embody his finesse, refinement, and perfected techniques while using quality ingredients.
“Chef Keller’s approach to cooking has set a new standard for chefs around the world,” said David Rogier, co-founder and CEO of MasterClass. “He is a natural at what he does, and we’re thrilled to offer his second class to students looking to learn techniques for preparing the perfect meat dish for family or friends at home.”
