His efforts were recognized as he moved from prep cook through the ranks to sous chef.
As Keller moved on, Claud later rejoined Keller as sous chef and manager at Evo (olive oil) Company and at the Beverly Hills Wine Merchant (private dinners) and catering. Celebrity chefs were being made and Keller was at the top of the list. The wine dinners gave Claud a chance to experiment and create dishes not possible in a hotel restaurant setting.

Claud received rave reviews for his cuisine from the Los Angeles Times and others, including a "top 50" food ranking from Zagat's.
