The tribute dinners at Pebble Beach Food & Wine are always star-studded affairs, where the country's best chefs cook for each other (and a room full of people who dropped over a grand to rub elbows). Years past have seen Tom Colicchio, Daniel Boulud, and Jacques Pepin taking turns as honorees; this year the spotlight was on Thomas Keller. And as part of the ceremony, a 16-minute video honoring Keller debuted. World-famous chefs like Eric Ripert, Tom Colicchio, and Daniel Humm all pop up to sing Keller's praises, and Boulud lets slip that he wanted to open a bistro called Bouchon before Keller did. (Keller's response, during a thank-you speech: "Bouchon is mine. Get over it.") We're not 100 percent sure Bouchon Beverly Hills chef Rory Herrmann is kidding when he says Keller makes his chefs caddy for him at least once a month, but the line certainly got the biggest laugh of the night. Watch the whole thing, straight ahead.
