In this class, Monique Creary will teach you the secrets of quick and easy white sauce — also known as béchamel sauce — one of the five “mother sauces” of French cuisine. This sauce can be used as a base for a variety of dishes.
This hands-on class will introduce you to the technique of making a roux (a principal thickening agent of flour and butter) and several delicious meals that use it as a base.
REAL Macaroni & Cheese
The ultimate comfort food. Why have it from a box when you can learn how to make your own gooey, creamy dish of cheesey deliciousness?
White Sauce Pizza
Rich, yet simple, this pizza has a garlic-based cream sauce, a nice change from the typical red sauce variety.
Chili Con Queso
No need to purchases this pricey cheese dip from a jar for those nacho nights. This spicy, Mexican-inspired dip is sure to be a crowd pleaser.
All participants will go home with a slice of their creamy creations (if there’s any left from all the snacking during class). Monique will also provide a take-home recipe sheet with the three recipes taught.
When she’s not teaching high school students various culinary skills during the day, Monique Creary is continually learning new kitchen hacks and perfecting her own recipes.
