Thomas Keller and Bastille

A few nights ago I had the opportunity to photograph a culinary master: Thomas Keller, the owner of and visionary behind The French Laundry, Bouchon, and Per Se.
Keller was a visiting chef participating in another one of Kim Rickett's fabulous Cooks and Books events.

This month, the event took place at Bastille in Ballard.

Some of my favorite moments of the night took place in the Bastille kitchen, with all the chefs busily working away and overseen by the talented Shannon Galusha.

Not surprisingly, I was too busy to eat the food, but got to read about it later.
Being behind the camera was a dream come true, so I am not complaining! :)

What beautiful photos, Clare. The chefs are so intent and creative in their "art". It's amazing to me that your photos are like a story; I feel I know just what is going on in each photo. I love your blogs.
