The Elegant Thomas Keller, in Rose Gold and Chef Whites

"Do you really like it on me?" asked Thomas Keller sincerely, of a $30K  rose-gold watch encircling his fuzzy, tanned wrist, on loan from  Vacheron Constantin. Grub assured him it looked very handsome. "Not too  feminine?" Nooo, chef Keller, very manly. “Okay, because I  usually only wear silver, so this is a new experience for me.” Yeah,  well, the experience of spending an evening at one of New York’s most  sprawling, Gossip Girl–like mansions, lounging around a kitchen  with Keller (who is, on the record, easier to talk to than a well-paid  shrink) was kind of new to us, too.
