Thomas Keller on Core Values
June 19th, 2012. Posted by Sarah
Thomas Keller - Rockpool friend, acclaimed chef, owner of some of America’s very best restaurants…L. Pierce Carson recently posted a fantastic piece on Chef Keller, his role as a mentor and his wonderul Top 12 Core Values. It’s a great read for anyone in the industry, chefs, service staff – but also for Joe Public – such an insight into just why Thomas Keller has got to where he is today and why the staff that come through his restaurants exhibit such great skills and mature mind set (case in point – Phil Wood, Head Chef Rockpool and Dan Masters – Head Chef Rockpool Bar & Grill Perth).
In a quote from the article, Chef Keller says young chefs should “continuously strive for recognition in the kitchen, which comes through in the (assigned) job that you do. If I continue to challenge (a young chef) it’s because I think you can do better. I notice how you dress, how you tie your apron, sharpen your knife … how you wrap cheese, cut the fish … the respect shown for what you’re working with.”
