Modern Sauces


A hands-on class culminating in a dinner served with wine and beer.

The old French culinary sauces have their place, but if it is a weekday and you need a delicious dinner there are an assortment of modern alternatives: faster, lighter, and just as tasty.  These modern sauces are a lighter, too, not an ounce of butter or cream used here!  And no need to stay in France for culinary inspiration; our contemporary approach will skip madly around the globe!
