Sauces, from Mastering the Art of French Cooking by Julia Child

About this experience

"Sauces are the splendor and glory of French cooking, yet there is nothing secret or mysterious about making them." - Julia Child

The five mother sauces of French cooking require few ingredients, are fairly quick to make and incredibly flexible - providing you with a nearly endless canvas for your personal creativity. And, it's that part of the fun of cooking?

In this course, we'll make one of each of the traditional mother sauces:
- béchamel
- velouté
- Espagne (or brown sauce)
- tomato
- Hollandaise

We'll also whip up a mayonnaise, because you won't believe how easy and delicious it is.

Once we have our five (plus one) mother sauces ready, we'll add a few simple ingredients to see how each can change to suit your dish or your mood!
