Description

Enjoy a new shopping experience in Toowoomba!

Your guide and experienced chef Tony Ching will show you how to shop for fresh Asian food at Toowoomba's Jasmine Asian Grocery. He’ll give you loads of hints and tips about choosing the best produce, advice on the key ingredients needed in your favourite dishes and insight into Asian food culture. You'll meet at the Jasmine at 9.30am, enjoy a wander and browse, then with shopping done you'll come back to Sauce and create a fabulous lunch in store using your produce. 

Tony will teach you his tried-and-true family recipes - many from his grandmother.  Recipes will depend a little on the produce available on the day but expect to make:

  • Wontons with pork and prawns
  • Steamed rice with Chinese sausage and eggs
  • Steamed Chinese bread
  • Braised beef with cherry tomatoes
  • Deep fried bananas with honey (using a milk batter)

Come along on your own and make some new friends, or make a group get-together.  Our classes are great fun in a friendly atmosphere in our beautiful historic building. 

* Please note, our classes require a minimum of six participants to operate, you will be eligible for a refund or re-schedule if a class does not go ahead.

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!

It was great to see how many dishes we could make with only a few ingredients. The variety and flavours were fantastic.

The latest Sauce cooking class was a great success. Chef Tony's engaging manner and his amazing knowledge made the Asian class a joy to do. The trip around the Chinese grocery store was a revelation and well worth the extra time. Then the combination of great recipes with great outcomes and the opportunity to eat what we produced made for a thoroughly enjoyable learning experience. Peter and Geraldine
