A hands-on in-person cooking class culminating in a dinner served with wine and beer. This class is limited to 12 students. Review our registration and cancellation policies here. Masks are recommended.


Having a few stellar sauce options in your back pocket can save a meal and a cook’s sanity. By preparing a few condiments, dressings and marinades at the start of the week, you are ensuring ease in the kitchen and pleasure at the dining table. 

In this class you will learn 5 very different sauces that you will return to again and again. Marie will also discuss and share ideas on how to maximize each one's reach. Everything from enhancing soups, to slowly braising a pot of humble beans, to roasting vegetables that were forgotten in the crisper. 

Please note that while the focus of the class is the sauces, we will make time for both a seasonal salad and roasting a few vegetables that will serve as vehicles for our class creations.
