“We call it l’harmonie du goût,” says Boulud. “The best ingredients, simply prepared with good seasoning and a great balance of flavor.”

In his course, available here, the man behind New York’s Daniel and over a dozen other award-winning restaurants worldwide takes you step-by-step through 10 different recipes—from the classic French omelette to ratatouille—to teach you the time-tested techniques and essential ingredients that will get your stovetop game on point.

2. La Préparation

“Planning! Anticipate the making of a recipe: what you need to purchase, how much time you’ll need to make it.”

3. Le Marché

“Ingredients! Invest in the best ingredients: fresh, seasonal, local.”

4. Le Tour de Main

“The method. Understand the technique and the process of preparation, from quality of ingredients to mise en place, and seasoning. Panna helps guide you through that part.”

5. La Présentation

“Wow your guests with the perfect presentation; the look, the smell, the emotion of a simple dish, executed perfectly.”
