Thomas Keller Speaks to Veggiewala!

[tweetmeme source= “Veggiewala” only_single=false]

Thomas Keller might be the newest target of the vegan foie gras protest, but much like with Bill Telepan, the protestors might be going after the wrong guy. Sure, both Telepan’s and Keller’s restaurants serve foie gras, but Chef Keller is actually very friendly towards vegetarians and vegans. At his restaurants Per Se and The French Laundry, he accommodates the dietary requests of the diner “as any great restaurant should.” And he’s collaborated on the cookbook Great Chefs Cook Vegan by Linda Long. I got a chance to speak with him while he was in Boston for a signing for his new cookbook, Ad Hoc At Home. Check out the video below. And if you’re curious about his favorite Bay State eateries, here’s some insight… while coming up from Providence, he ate at Il Forno, but is also a big fan of Ken Oringer. If he gets a chance, he likes to stop over at Clio while he’s in town. He’s also looking forward to checking out Oringer’s latest project near Fenway: La Verdad Taqueria.
