Half Day 'Essential' Sauces Cookery Class - Devon

Develop your cookery skills with a half day essential sauce making workshop in Exeter. Learn the techniques used to make some of the so-called 'mother' sauces from a highly experienced chef.

Price for 1 participant

As most of us who are into cooking will know, there are a range of traditional sauces, known as the 'Mother Sauces'. These are what 19th Century chef, Marie-Antoine Carême and later Chef Auguste Escoffier claim to be the 5 'essential' sauces for cooking. This half day cookery experience in Exeter focuses on the importance of these essential sauces and will soon have you ditching the jars and creating your own sauces and roux from scratch.

Your half day cookery lesson will take place in a purpose-built kitchen in Exeter's historic quayside. You'll greet your expert chef for the day, along with the rest of your group, before going over a little of the history of these fabulous sauces. Then it's time to put your aprons on, collect your pans and get to work on the first of many sauces you'll be getting to grips with. Whilst there may not be time to perfect all of the 'Mother Sauces', you'll be learning to make a delicious Meat Sauce; Mayonnaise; White Sauce; Hollandaise; and Béarnaise - you'll also get some tips on how best to pair these with shellfish, meat dishes and pasta dishes.

Sometimes the traditional ways are the best ways, especially when it comes to if you've always wanted to learn the difference between a Hollandaise and a Béarnaise and would love to be able to make those delicious staple sauces from scratch then this half day course is just the ticket!
