Carol Blymire: Thomas Keller is My Homeboy



May 03, 2010


I had a chance to stroll with the one, the only, Thomas Keller. My Internet godfather. I asked him who would win an arm wrestling contest between Mario Batali and Eric Ripert, and he said it depended on a ton of variables: the time of night, how much gin had been consumed, and a host of other things he wouldn't divulge. Then we got serious for a minute (no, we didn't) and I asked him if he could have one superhero power, what would it be? His answer? The ability to fly, of course. The last book he read was The Shack and the last movie he saw was Avatar.
