Here's a seventeen minute Thomas Keller tribute film from this weekend's Pebble Beach Food & Wine festival. And boy is it full of fancy chefs: Eric Ripert, Thomas Colicchio, Daniel Boulud, Corey Lee, Daniel Humm, and more. Ripert pretty much sums up what everyone's thinking: "We were all inspired by that chef who left the city and went in the middle of nowhere — I mean, it's Napa, it's not nowhere — opened a tiny restaurant and has fun with the product and is cooking his heart off. It's the ultimate experience." Warning: this is some touching shit.
