Join the class awarded the "2014 Best Culinary Video Series" by the International Association of Culinary Professionals! Explore classic and modern sauce-making techniques that will expand your skill set and spur your culinary creativity. With James Peterson, a seven-time James Beard award-winning cookbook author, you'll learn how to make five mother sauces: béchamel, tomato, brown sauce (sauce espagnole), velouté and hollandaise, along with beurre blanc and mayonnaise -- two additional sauces that James believes are a must. Once you've mastered the key processes, James will show you how to experiment with flavors for endless sauce variations that will make your cooking unique. James will also show you how to keep your sauces from breaking – and how to salvage them if they do.
