FULL - Kitchen Basics: Classic Mother Sauces - Thurs AM

$4999

with Amy Church

Calendar Feb 27, 2020 at 11 am

Kitchen Basics Class (This class is a repeat of a fundamentals class which has been offered in the past. Please email Amy at info@salemcooks.com if you are unsure whether you've taken this class.)

This class will explain in detail the "mother" sauces of classic French cuisine. You will learn about the building blocks of traditional sauce-making: stock and roux. Learn the difference between white and brown stock; and white, light, and dark roux. From there, Chef Amy will demonstrate how to properly combine and cook the stock, roux, seasonings, and flavorings into four classic Mother Sauces: Béchamel, Velouté, Espagnole and Tomate. She will also demonstrate the fifth Mother Sauce, everyone's favorite: Hollandaise! Each mother sauce will be flavored and transformed into a "small sauce" or variation, and served. Class discussion will include an exploration of modern updates to these classic sauces.

A special sauce is often the difference between a good home-cooked meal and a fine restaurant meal. Learn how to give your home cooking an upgrade with this exciting class!

Something rather unique to the food culture of the Pacific Northwest is the prevalence of teriyaki and yakisoba on the menus of little diners and food carts around the region. Thanks to a rich heritage of Japanese and Korean immigrants to Seattle and southward through Tacoma and Portland to our area, we have been lucky to enjoy these tasty dishes for decades now. 

Would you love to learn quick, fresh versions of these dishes to make at home? In this class, Chef Amy will prepare the juiciest, most flavorful Teriyaki Chicken Thighs you've ever tried, using a lighter Japanese-style base. We'll skip the rice and serve the chicken with a flavor-packed Sweet Sesame Winter Salad. Then you'll enjoy wok-tossed Rainbow Veggie Yakisoba Noodles full of healthy veggies in a wonderful sweet-savory-spicy sauce. We'll finish with Japanese sweets. These are quick recipes, packed with flavor and perfect for weeknight family meals. Don't miss this class!
