What our

students say.


"Learn to be a cook, at your own pace, but the right way. Not just following recipes but learning the history of cuisine, the culture of what you're making. NO dinner party will ever be the same...much less a simple sauce! Chef Stefan is accessible and always has great advice. Just do it...you won't regret it."


Maurice Becnel Jr

"I signed up for the sauce making course with French Cooking Academy and have absolutely loved it so far! The course itself is very informative and educational, providing detailed steps for each recipe. The instructor, Stephane, is both fun and interesting to listen to and very good at explaining things clearly. He is very engaged with the class online and quick to provide feedback or answer questions. I plan to sign up for the other available online courses through French Cooking Academy after I complete the sauce one."

Frequently asked questions



“Who is this course for?”
This is the perfect course for the home cook who understands the basic techniques of French cooking It will help to have some knowledge of French cooking techniques, like mis en place, knife techniques and preparing basic stocks, before you start this course.

"Does the content of this course overlap with content covered in your previous courses?"
Every course we make is unique and while a couple of topics are similar (e.g., stocks and mother sauces) all lessons and video tutorials are brand new. This course goes deeper than the sauce based topics covered in our course for beginners, Get Started with French Cooking. The techniques taught in Master French Sauces at Home are more advanced going beyond mother sauces and derivatives to include dozens of bistrot classics and elegant restaurant sauces.
 
“How is this course different from other courses out there on French sauce making?"
Most cooking courses only go as far as teaching the mother sauces and derivatives. Master
French Sauces at Home goes far beyond that, teaching the skills to create a variety of sauces like the saucier in a French kitchen. From bistrot favourites like Bercy, Bearnaise, Sauce Diable and Ravigote to restaurant classics like the Bordelaise, Beurre Blanc, Chateaubriand, Duxelle and many more; some of which you will know and others which will be exciting new discoveries. The techniques and range of saucier techniques you will learn in this course will take your cooking to the next level.

“How long does the course take to complete?"
This course is completely self-paced so you can take as long as you like. 
 
"How long do I have access to the course?”
After enrolling, you have lifetime access (meaning as long as the course is live) to all course materials, documents and videos. You can watch the lessons at your own pace and as many times as you want.
 
"What specific equipment do I need to follow the course?"
At a minimum, you will need a set of saucepans, sieve, wooden spoon, rubber spatula and a whisk to make most of the sauces in this course. But if you want to get serious and equip yourself with the cookware and utensils that a saucier would use in a professional kitchen, there is a full list of equipment included in the course. You can treat this as a reference if you would like to invest in a few extra items for your kitchen.
 
"Can’t I just learn this stuff from watching YouTube?
It is true that you can learn a lot from YouTube and it is a good resource for recipes. But if you are serious about learning how to cook, YouTube has its limitations. What you don’t get from YouTube is curated lessons taught in sequence and structured so you are learning like a professional would. Master French Sauces at Home is more comprehensive than what you can find on YouTube and many of the lessons and recipes have never been taught online as far as we know. It is also packed with original recipes and resources to help guide your transformation from struggling with a basic sauce recipe to becoming a skilled French sauce maker.
 
"Is there a money-back guarantee?"
Of course! If you find that the course is not for you within 30 days of purchase, just let us know via email and we will give you a full refund, no questions asked.

"Will I receive a certificate of completion upon finishing the course?"
Yes, you will receive a certificate of completion once you have finished the course. Please note that because we are a private school, this certificate is not endorsed nor recognized as an official trade certification.
