This class was great! I'm a pretty experienced cook, but I'm always looking for new techniques, and mother sauces were something I was looking forward to. I loved how the class was structured; it allowed everyone to participate and learn how the sauces are made without taking too much time. Being in a small group was also excellent, as it allowed us to relax and chat while working. The entire process was fun, and eating the meal at the end was wonderful. I got a pdf with the recipes after the class, so I'm looking forward to making the dishes again!
