Duration: 5:30 hrs
Hours : 2:15 pm - 7:45 pm
A large majority of French dishes are made of or accompanied by various sauces or jus. We can quote for example the beurre blanc, the sauce béarnaise, the red wine sauce. These sauces bring taste, enhance a flavor or make the connections between the aromas of different ingredients in the same dish. You will have realised that the sauces and jus are essential in the French gastronomy!
In a friendly atmosphere, in a small group and under the guidance of a Chef Instructor, you will learn to master these dressings and you will experiment in detail with all the sauces and jus proposed by the Le Cordon Bleu Chef.
Apron, tea towel and cooler bag “Le Cordon Bleu” are offered. A participation certificate will be given by the Chef at the end of the workshop.
Did you know? The beurre blanc recipe was invented by Clémence Lefeuvre in 1860. It is composed of butter, vinegar, white wine and shallots. Proportions may vary according to taste and chefs.
