Keller will be in town on June 12 and 13 to support KCET Uncorked!, a pair of dinners at Bouchon Bistro, the proceeds of which will help support the newly-independent KCET public television station. On June 12, Santa Barbara winemaker Jorian Hill’s will pair his with a menu of French culinary specialties crafted by Bouchon Chef de Cuisine Rory Herrmann, while Chef Keller will be in attendance for a personal tour of Bouchon’s kitchens. Tickets for that event will go for $250. For those with deeper pockets, Thomas Keller and his team will prepare an exclusive six-course chef’s tasting menu to be served along with wines from Rusack Vineyards on June 13. The cost: $2,500. That’s certainly a steep price, even for those who love to support their public television (Go Huell!). But we’d put our money on T.K. being the one chef able to serve a meal worthy of a cool two-and-a-half grand.
