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.

Chef Greg was awesome. Delicious food, learned a lot about not just the sauces but cooking in general, and was just generally a fun dude to talk to. Was also very respectful of the space, and cleaned as he cooked. Thanks Greg!

Chef Greg came to our home and cooked up some delicious food while teaching us some great new cooking skills especially regarding heat! He was also kind enough to modify the menu for pescatarians while still educating us about the traditional Mother Sauces. The class was very informative and the food delicious-- we have so many leftovers! It was very impressive how quickly he whipped up so many dishes especially since nothing was prepped ahead of time-- this was awesome because it proved how possible it is to cook like this on your own. We appreciated that Greg was willing to suit the class to what we were looking for-- information versus just tasting delicious food-- it's really what you decide to make of it. He's a social chameleon and has some great stories about life outside the kitchen!
