Sauce The Sauce Kitchen

Vendor sincce 2013

Sauce is a cooking school situated in the Beautiful Garden City "Toowoomba". Our beautiful heritage building has been lovingly renovated. Come and see how gorgeous it is.

"Sauces are the splendor and the glory of French cooking" - Julia Child.

There is also the connotation of saucey behaviour! Life has to be fun.

A sauce may only be as exciting and delectable as the chef that creates it. We were enthused by the passion and professionalism of the chefs we consulted. They helped refine the kitchen to make it a pleasurable space in which to teach and learn. Their passion for food and their ability to convey this as teachers is a great driving force behind the cooking classes.

Every effort has been extended to source stock to meet the needs of every cook and beyond.

Sauce is still a work in progress - with enthusiastic, knowledgeable and dedicated staff, we will continue to strive to meet your expectations and provide a complete source for all things kitchen.  The Sauce Cafe is up and running, so come and have morning or afternoon tea, or lunch, enjoy our kitchen space and our cooking classes!

Great day with a beautiful baker! So much I'd never done before! Never simmered a chicken (turned out succulents). Never made a soufflé!! Lovely chicken pies were so simple to make but tasty! It was a feel good day!

We learnt how to perfect the basics and little tricks and tips along the way. I would recommend this class to others and enjoyed the experience and thought the instructor was very nice and full of information. I was expecting the class to be more hands on, for example I thought we would each be making our own bechamel and souffle's rather than watching someone making it and occasionally getting to crack eggs or stir something.
