Once you understand the basic Mother Sauces, you’ll be able to create a variety of dishes from scratch that will even impress your own mother.

Each Mother sauce - béchamel, espagnole, hollandaise, tomato and veloute -  is the “head” of its own unique family of sauces. Tonight, Chef Jesse Vega wants to take these basic sauces a step further by offering some interesting variations that will kick your everyday meals up a notch and take them from “meh” to fabulous!

He will teach you the art of creating “smaller” sauces from each of them in this comprehensive and fun class by using thickening agents such as roux, and adding herbs, spices and other ingredients. Plus, learn useful culinary techniques like boiling, simmering, whisking, emulsifying and reducing. (Won’t YOU be a fancy pants?)  Finally, Chef will create a tasting menu that utilize these gems. Lucky you!

Don’t miss this great class that’s sure to take your home-cooked meals to the next level.
