Thomas Keller Named to the French Legion of Honor

Thomas Keller will be named a Chevalier of the French Legion of Honor thanks to his efforts to spread the joys of French food throughout the US. Keller joins Julia Child and Alice Waters as the third American honored by the order for work in food.

French chef Paul Bocuse will present him with the award at a ceremony at Keller's restaurant Per Se in New York on March 29. Congratulations, chef!
