Mastering Saute & Sauce (beginners)
Knowing how to saute is important for any home cook. Especially if you want to create meals quickly. In this class we'll be learning saute skills with several different foods. We'll also be learning that sauces take your ordinary foods to become extraordinary by making a simple pan sauce, a vinaigrette and a dessert sauce.
Menu: The menu will be choosen to provide skill based training on saute and sauces, but we'll be doing enough dishes to have a whole meal for everyone to eat at the end of class. If you have an allergy or food restriction please let us know when you register.
You will work side by side with other couples to cook in the Fort Collins tradition of Farm to Fork. Following a recipe review with your Chef Instructor, you and your fellow classmates will prepare a meal together. The Chef Instructor will be on hand to guide you through any unfamiliar territory. The evening ends as you gather around the table with your food and wine and share lessons learned. And best of all, clean up is done for you by our dishwashers and kitchen assistants.
Classes are 100% hands-on so come prepared to cook and eat well. In class we will dedicate 30 minutes of menu discussion and then move into assignments for the hands-on portion of class.
Equipment needed: All kitchen equipment, knives, aprons, food, spices and herbs are provided. This is an immersion, hands-on class and you will be on your feet most of the class. Please wear comfortable shoes with closed toes for safety purposes.
Time : Class is 3 to 4 hours long. Depending on the menu and the flow, some classes are shorter and others can go longer. Clean up is done by the kitchen assistants, so you will leave after sharing the meal you’ve created with the Chef, kitchen assistants and your fellow students.
Materials: Handouts are provided and include notes on the knife skills covered, the menu, recipes and tips from the Chef.
Class size: Classes are limited to 18 students due to the hands on nature of the instruction
Who will be the Chef Instructor?
We have a very talented group of Chef Instructors teaching at The Cooking Studio who also work at local restaurants or are teaching at Professional Culinary Schools, own catering businesses or working as Personal Chefs.
All Chef Instructors are highly skilled in their topic area and bring that skill, passion and personality to class.
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
Parking is available in the parking garage directly behind The Opera Galleria. The cost is $1/hour. If you prefer it, the MAX stop is just a block away. Please don’t park on the street as the parking limit is 2 hours and classes will typically run 3hrs or more. Biking to Old Town is always and option of course. Don’t forget to bring a backpack or basket in case you want to carry leftovers home after class.
