Class at La Provence

Today, I spent a couple of hours learning the secrets of French cooking at one of the best French restaurants in the Sacramento area with two friends. The best word to describe our class was delightful.

The setting was perfect.

In the class, our clearly knowledgeable instructor demonstrated how to make the 5 mother sauces of French cooking: bechamel, aoili, remoulade, hollandaise, and bernaise.  To his credit, the instructor made these sauces look easy to prepare. I somehow suspect it will not be quite so easy in my kitchen. 🙂
