Thomas Keller

By: Chalkney Travier


Thomas Keller began his culinary career at a young age working in a Palm Beach restaurant managed by his mother. He then moved to France in 1983, where he worked in several Michelin-starred houses including Guy Savoy and Taillevent. Years Later, Thomas started his own restaurant in Yountville, California, called “The French Laundry.” French Laundry turned out to be a big hit. Thomas cooking style was the French and his signature dish was salmon cornets. Thomas is one of the greatest chefs alive. Other than Thomas restaurant “ The French Laundry”, Thomas has another restaurant in New York called “Per Se”. Thomas is not only a great chef he was also a wonderful mentor; he trained young chefs that would one day lead his restaurants. Now, Thomas is currently trying to appeal the ruling of the violation found in Item 2b on the report.
