The 2011 Festival of Books had a Legendary Chef: Thomas Keller at the Cooking Stage! Thomas Keller is not only a Chef’s Chef, he is someone who deserves awe and he is very inspirational. I went to see him because he created “The French Laundry” ( ), Bouchon” (  and “Per Se“(

He is a perfectionist and he is a motivator, but mostly he is role model to look up to. He is a multiple James Beard award winning Chef. He is the only American Chef ever awarded the coveted Michelin three star rating simultaneously for two restaurants Per Se and The French Laundry.

He gave me such inspiration and motivation by listening to him that I would have paid to hear him had I known what I was going to receive. The good news it was free.

I will share one small sentence he passed on: The Challenge is to maintain passion for the everyday routine and endlessly repeated act, to derive deep gratification from the mundane. This sentence resonated with me how much cooking is similar to Real Estate. We do many mundane things over and over and the result of our efforts creates:  happy Sellers and happy Buyers. How profound of an observation. I loved it. I was sad that the discussion ended.
