Anything Thomas Keller does in the kitchen is wondrous magic. Out of the kitchen he is also an incredibly nice individual who I am grateful for having shared his passion for cooking with me and my kids

Hopefully they’re not using bong water as a soup ingredient.

that’s actually some quality snark there. “oh, your critic says our soup looks like bong water? well then, we’ll serve him next time with a bong.”

How does one “blow” something with their “hand”?

When Anthony Bourdain went there for A Cook’s Tour, Thomas Keller made him a surprise desert from his two favorite things: coffee and cigarettes (mocha custard infused with tobacco leaf). The guy is like Willie Wonka in the kitchen and I hope to eat there someday.

We tried Keller’s French Laundry years ago and were horribly disappointed. I don’t think we rated “bong” status. I’m guessing that food critics and insiders have a totally different experience.

No disrespect to Chef Keller…
…I think this is a little silly.

Here’s an idea: instead of saying “My three stars puts me above criticism,” why not taste the soup and see if there is room for improvement?
