Class Description: 

It’s that final touch that makes all the difference!  Tonight, experienced Chef & Lead Instructor Jill Garcia Schmidt teaches one of our most popular cooking topics – the art of sauce-making!   

You’ll get to grab your sweetie and help with some of the cooking while you learn make some classic and contemporary sauces. Chef Jill will introduce you to the basic mother sauces: Tomato, Velouté, Bechamel, Espagnole and Hollandaise.

You’ll also learn the art of creating “smaller” sauces from each of them by using thickening agents such as roux and adding herbs and spices. Understanding the nuances of these basic sauces will also assist you when ordering from a menu. Who knew? Oh, that’s right….YOU will….and you’ll be darn impressive to your family and friends, too!

Yes, there will be tasting, and you'll leave with all the recipes, too! Kick up your cooking repertoire and have a fun evening stirring things up with your honey, to boot! 

NOTE:  Unless otherwise noted, each evening class fee includes one glass of beer/wine, with additional beverages available at a nominal cost.
