Basic Techniques of Sauce Making

($30.00 per person)

First, the bechamel: the basic white sauce that creates the rich, creamy texture in many pasta dishes. We are going to take Mac & Cheese to a whole new level!

Next we'll pan sear a pork tenderloin which creates the foundation for the basic pan sauce. It's gravy...but better!

We will then learn how to make hollandaise, a simple way to add flavor and finesse to vegetables.

And finally, dessert sauces... Chocolate, Caramel and Raspberry.

Fresh Pasta

($30.00 per person)

I have found that making your own fresh pasta, is just as rewarding as making home made bread. It takes a bit of time and a pasta rolling machine, but the results are worth the effort. Once you experience this process, I think you will find that the whole family will want to be involved. This is a memory I have cherished from my childhood with my Nana. One of the great things about many pasta dishes is that they make such a quick meal; a starch, a vegetable and a protein all dished up at once. The time spent creating the pasta will be saved in the quick, easy, throw-together-toppings from items that you would typically find on hand in your pantry or fridge.
