Chef Keller shows us where he grew up, above a patisserie his family used to own. We stop in to meet Remy Schall, the new owner who is making a buche de Noel for the upcoming Christmas dinner. The culinary tour continues with a trip to the most famous jam maker in France, Christine Ferber, and a stop at Chef Keller's favorite restaurant where he introduces us to Alsatian specialties.
