This course in a nutshell.

Mastering French Sauces at Home is a complete program that gives you the necessary skills and knowledge to make high quality cooking stocks and classic French sauces at home. The program goes in-depth to take you through the entire process of modern stock making, teaches you how to use mother sauces as a foundation to craft professional-grade sauces and completes the journey with a series of hands on videos to help you master dozens of classic French sauces.


This course is more suitable for home cooks with some experience in the kitchen.


Step into the shoes of the saucier.

This course puts you in the shoes of the saucier, one of the most important roles in the French kitchen. The saucier must have the skills and techniques to expertly create sauces so that every dish shines. This course will take you from ‘why does my Hollandaise keep failing?’ to ‘home-saucier brimming with confidence’.


Blending old and new techniques.

Mastering French Sauces at Home teaches you techniques and recipes that are evolving in today’s professional kitchens. We revisit the old classics but also discover modern techniques that today's French chefs are experimenting with to create new breeds of mother sauces and derivatives. 


No fancy ingredients needed.

Not all great sauces require fancy ingredients. The delicious sauces in this course can be made with products available at your local market or store using recipes that can be easily made at home.


Experience new flavor profiles.

Mastering French Sauces at Home will take your taste buds on a rich and rewarding journey. Did you know that there are over 250 different sauces in French cuisine. We have narrowed this down to around 40 to bring you almost every flavor experience French cooking has to offer. Creamy, tangy, slightly sweet, silky, smoky, packing a garlic punch, boozy, spicy, sour and fruity; it’s all here.

Frequently asked questions


“Who is this course for?”

This is the perfect course for the home cook who understands the basics techniques of French cooking and is probably not where you would want to start if your are an absolute beginner. That said, you don’t need to hold a cooking accreditation or have experience working in a restaurant to complete the course. You just need to have some knowledge of French cooking techniques, like mis en place, knife techniques, preparing basic stocks, and mother sauces to get the most out of your commitment.

Mastering French Sauces at Home is also valuable for accredited cooks who want to acquire deeper knowledge of French sauce making.


"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 far deeper than topics covered in our course for beginners, Get Started with French Cooking. The techniques taught in Mastering French Sauces at Home are more advanced and it goes well 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?"

 This course is unlike any other cooking course out there. While most courses only go as far as teaching the mother sauces and derivatives, this course goes far beyond that, teaching the skills to create an array of sauces just 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 transform your cooking.


How long does the course take to complete?"

 If your plate is already piled high with work, kids or client demands there is good news. This course is completely self-paced. 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 few 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 carefully curated lessons and resources taught in sequence and structured so you are learning like a professional would.

I have set out to create the most comprehensive and unique program on French sauce making available anywhere - be it online or at a bricks and mortar casual cooking school. Mastering French Sauces at Home goes much deeper than what you can find on YouTube and many of the lessons and recipes have not been taught online.

Like my other popular courses, this course also has heaps of cooking recipes and resources to help guide your transformation from merely following a basic sauce recipe to becoming a skilled home saucier.

 

"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.
