I thought I knew how to make a regular mornay sauce but the Chef gave me the knowledge to make the best sauce ever! Liked the top tips to get best flavour into savoury sauces from how far to reduce and how to make an excellent stock. Well worth doing even for experienced home cooks!

“Surpassed my Expectations”
Covered all the things I was hoping to learn and surpassed my expectation on my actual hands on involvement! Would thoroughly recommend this course to anyone thinking of taking the plunge, excellent teacher, course content and structure, and they even have assistants on hand to clear away and wash up!!

“Our tutor was excellent”
Our tutor was excellent, very friendly and always willing to help out when needed. He was also great at sharing so many little extra tips and tricks of the trade. It was my second course and all I can say is that I'm looking forward to my third!!

Wonderful course. The chef paced it really well and the sauces we learned were absolutely delicious. I felt that I gained a lot of confidence to reproduce them at home.

“Such a great day”
Just had a wonderful day with Tom and his sauces course. I don't think it gets much better than that. It was inspirational, very well planned and executed and great humour. Top marks to Tom and to the superb facilities at Ashburton. Thank you for such a great day.
