 Wow,wow, wow. Can you imagine being mentored by some of the topmost chefs in the world??? It could happen.

Jérôme Bocuse, Thomas Keller and Daniel Boulud are expanding and renaming their Bocuse d’Or USA Foundation, originally established solely to Bocuse chefstrain contestants for the US team in the Bocuse d’Or competition. Now however, under the name, ment’or BKB Foundation, it will offer grants and programs for aspiring young culinarians.

Chris Hastings will helm the grants program and Yung Yun {shown above with Boulud, Keller & Bocuse} will serve as executive director. Participating chefs will come from the Culinary Council that includes such luminaries as Grant Achatz, José Andrés, Paul Bartolotta, John Besh, Tom Colicchio, and Emeril Lagasse.

Feb 18.2014 – Parmesan Crisps by Thomas Keller

Hosted & produced by Barbara Nosek

A one-ingredient wonder from Keller’s “French Laundry” cookbook

1/2 c finely grated Parmesan-Reggiano {from a moist piece of cheese}  You’ll also need a Silpat or alternative {see Notes}

Preheat oven to 325 F. Line a baking sheet with a Silpat. Sprinkle about two teaspoons of the cheese in one corner of the Silpat. Use your fingers to spread the cheese into a 2″ circle. Repeat with the remaining cheese – you should have about 12 rounds.

Bake for 8-10 min, or until they are golden brown. Use a small spatula to transfer them to paper towels. They will still be soft when they are removed but will stiffen as they cool. Store the crisps in an airtight container for up to two days.

Notes . . . chef Keller shows this in the cookbook as an accompaniment for English pea soup but likes to serve them with other soups, with salads, and as a “holder” for such toppings as his goat cheese mousse which is also featured in the French Laundry cookbook . . . he also emphasizes how important it is to use freshly grated cheese . . . a search on Yahoo suggests that parchment paper or even a baking sheet with a non-stick surface could be used in place of Silpat.
