Class Date:

September 14, 2023

Class Time:

6:00 pm

Event Location:

Antsy Nancy

The five French mother sauces are: Béchamel, Velouté, Espagnole, Hollandaise, and Tomato. With a few simple ingredients (mostly flour, butter, and a liquid) and a couple easy techniques, these five sauces serve as the starting point for a slew of other classics.  In between each sauce creation, we will take breaks to enjoy a 5-course tasting menu that highlight each of the 5 sauces with a bonus 6th sauce – chocolate ganache!


  • 1st course: VELOUTE: Cream of Mushroom Soup
  • 2nd course: TOMATO: Ratatouille
  • 3rd course: BECHAMEL: Mac n Cheese
  • 4th course: HOLLANDAISE: Poached Salmon with Asparagus OR ESPAGNOLE: Braised Short Ribs & Mashed Potato (we recommend couple groups choose one of each, so they can taste both entrees).
  • 5th course: BONUS SAUCE: CHOCOLATE GANACHE! Cream puffs with Chocolate Ganache

An optional, complimentary glass of French wine will be provided to attendees 21+ years during our final course. Students 21+ years are welcome to bring their own wine, champagne, beer, etc. to enjoy during class. Please see our BYOB policy for more details.
