Keller To Lv

Recommended Posts

I understand that "discussions are continuing" on Thomas Keller doing something in LV. The February issue of LV Life had a brief mention that TK and Boulud would set up shop in LV during 2003.

Of course, with the tourist traffic down, gaming revenues down, and SARS issues up, who knows?

As far as the quality of LV restaurants, I actually preferred the LV Aqua to the SF Aqua.

It just defies reason that he's making this hullabaloo about the New York thing but not uttering a peep about Las Vegas. And is he really going to pull a Vongrichten and open up two restaurants within the space of a year. I still say NOT.

If you check out The Venetian website Venetian Webpage, you will find information of TK's newest venture: a spin off of Bouchon. It will open in the new wing of the Venetian. Not a full scale French Laundry, but a bistro open from early to late.

Cheers,

Perry

But I tell you what if Thomas Keller associates himself with Las VEgas I'm quitting the biz and taking up cotton farming.

so when you give up whatever it is you're doing and become a cotton farmer, are you going to stop posting?

thanks.

don't tempt me. I'm a chef...and in this economy I may have to give it up. So I'm going to salt and pepper my own words and enjoy them as they slide down my jaded gullet. Thanks Tom.

Thanks

that info seems to wrap up several of the threads.

a keller property in the venetian, opening mid-2003. doesn't say so, but it would make sense to have josef at the helm.

let's see if it actually happens...

      GE is entering the SV field in an innovative way. They are doing a crowdfunding approach through one of their Innovation technology centers. The device itself is also innovative in that it uses a Inductive cooktop for the heating element with a wireless temperature sensor. It's also unique in that it does not include any type of water circulation.
       
      Here's a link to the crowdfunding site: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/paragon-induction-cooktop/
       
      What does everybody think about this entry into the field? If nothing else it certainly shows that SV has gotten the attention of major appliance makers. A few weeks ago GE also announced that one of their new lines of stoves will have the same type of temperature control as this device uses so you can do SV on your stovetop.

      I made the Creme Anglaise recipe from Myhrvold Modernist Cuisine - it did look curdled and lumpy coming out of the zip lock bag as described in the recipe.
       
      I used my stick blender to smooth it out as instructed, but I think I blended it for too long, and it went from lumpy to smooth to watery. Did I make a fatal mistake of over blending the custard?
       
      The recipe does not say how to blend or when to stop.
       
      Hoping one of the gurus can give me guidance before I try this again.
       
      Many Thanks

      Has anyone used Valrhona Absolut Crystal neutral glaze particularly to thicken a coulis or to glaze a tart?  If so, how did you like it and is there another glaze you think worked as well but is less expensive or can be purchased in smaller quantities?

      Hello.
      I would like to buy some pectinex ultra sp-l.
      However I am worried about the temperature during the shipping time.
      I read that the storage temperature should be between 2 and 8 C. It works best from 15 to 50 C, and if it stays a lot of time in 25 C, it will gradually be deactivated.
       
      It needs a week to come here (Greece), then will it affect its abilities?
       
      Do you know if I can find a document somewhere that explains the gradual loss of power as a function of time and temperature?
      Did you have any experience with pectinex not working well due to bad storage?
       
      Thanks.
