“Many people asked me why I became a cook. Initially, I loved the camaraderie in the kitchen. I loved being part of a team. Later on, I was working for a chef who asked me, “Why do folks cook?” “We cook to nurture people.”
That was the day I decided to become a professional chef. Inviting somebody into your home is a very personal and emotional thing. And then when you cook for them, it’s even more so. Preparing a meal for somebody is sharing who you are sharing that love you have for them, nurturing them, not only with the food that you’ve given them, but the love that you put into the preparation of it.
I have had a long and wonderful relationship with the folks at Hestan, long before Hestan commercial even existed. When we designed Hestan commercial we were very thoughtful, making sure that it had everything that it needed to perform in our kitchens. We put a lot of thought and care into our preparations for our guest. Hestan indoor has taken that same thoughtfulness, that same attention to detail and applied it to the equipment that we are using in our homes.” – Chef Thomas Keller 2019
What elevates good to greatness? That’s all about finesse, taking the time and effort to home the details.

With every innovation has been put in the work of thought and care and create something truly beautiful.
