March 01 2015 - Day Course
Enhance your home cooked dishes with restaurant quality sauces that are easy and quick to make if you have the know-how. Our team will teach you the techniques of how to make sauces, stocks, veloutes and soups that get progressively more technical and how these pillars of cooking are inter-related. Sauces are the 'show-stopper' of a fine meal and enable a good chef to demonstrate his/her talent. Classics will naturally be included along with innovative twists to liven up everyday dishes.
