Not My Job: French Laundry Chef Thomas Keller Gets Quizzed On Actual Laundry

Friday, July 18, 2014

Twenty years ago, chef Thomas Keller bought a little restaurant in Napa Valley called The French Laundry and transformed it into one of the finest restaurants in the country. He's inspired countless other chefs, consulted on the film Ratatouille, opened other award-winning restaurants, and convinced people to pay $100 for a corn pudding appetizer.

We've invited Keller to play a game called "Light starch, on hangers please, and I'll need it Wednesday." Keller has done pretty well running a business called The French Laundry, but how many clothes has he cleaned? We'll ask him three questions about actual laundry.
