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!

Chef mike was very nice and a solid instructor. But the class placed only some focus on the sauces, and participants did not each get to try their hand at the different techniques. For example only one participant actually made hollandaise, while the rest of us watched. Not what I expected from “mastering the mother sauces.”

Chef Mike was amazing and we had a superb team-building experience with him. The class was fun and we learned a lot. Mastering Mother Sauces was a great choice for us: we learned to make 4 different sauces and prepared a delicious lunch. He is very knowledgeable AND a great instructor. His kitchen is beautiful and well equipped. I would recommend any class by Chef Mike!
