4 hours Class size 1 to 30     label £110


Looking for different things to do in London this weekend? Level up your culinary prowess with this sauce-focussed cookery class!

As a seasoned foodie, you know that a killer sauce can make or break a delicious meal. Whether it’s mouth-watering steak dying to be enrobed in a luxuriously silky béarnaise or a wholesome bowl of homemade pasta needing a coat of perfect pesto, nailing those all-important sauces is crucial to transforming any meal into a feast.

Guided by one of The Avenue's expert sauciers, you’ll be exploring a wealth of sauce options, from a humble roux to a zesty chimichurri. You'll get a host of delicious tips and tricks to enable you to recreate restaurant quality sauces at home and how you can use them to bring any dish from drab to fab in minutes.

This cookery course includes a flavoursome mix of a lively, informative demonstration by our wonderful and well-experienced sauce masters, followed by hands-on cookery where you will get to create some of the sauces yourself. Last, but certainly not least, you'll conclude with a fabulous three-course meal to enjoy the fruits of your labour.
