Once you master the five mother sauces, you unlock the entire world of culinary sauces.

During this unique cooking class, you'll learn all about the five mother sauces, from which most other sauces are created. You'll explore each of the sauces by preparing five potential dishes, whipping up a smoky Dijon-cheddar Béchamel sauce, creamy garlic basil marinara, white wine Velouté sauce, red wine Espagnole sauce and a sweet egg yolk sauce in the process. You'll leave the class with a whole new set of recipes in your repertoire, as well as with the skills to craft your own delicious sauces for future dishes.

Guests are welcome to provide wine and beer to enjoy during the class.

Greg showed up on time and we got to speak a few times before he got here about kitchen equipment and prep. He has enormous experience and we actually did all 5 Mother sauces Plus variations! This class is for people who want to learn how to cook- not for someone to teach you a recipe. You can follow that from a page. This is skill- wish I had done it in my 20's. Plus the skill set is so important we may all do the class one more time. For example we made the Hollandaise and in a separate pan had a reduction to alter it to béarnaise! If I only had berry's we would have made Sabayon! We did the béchamel and turned it into a few items and from the Volute we made marsala and Française. All along Greg told us short cuts and fixes. Our last sauce was the tomato and it was really good. Not like the Italian family style we have always made so for sure a useful skill. If you really like to cook and want true skills this is your class! Fantastic!

Greg came over to cook for my husband's birthday. He was professional & punctual, and the food was delicious! We really enjoyed our evening with him and would recommend his services as a private chef.
