Great Intro To Sauces and Professional Cooking

What a great class. I really enjoyed watching this instructor as he taught us the basics of sauces (and some chef-ery as well), and then taught us how to make them better, easier and tastier.

As a gluten intolerant person, I was happy to see that some of the modern takes on sauces did not include flour, but I've also made sauces with gluten free flour blends successfully.

Thanks to the instructor, and to Craftsy!

Totally revolutionized my cooking!

This class totally elevated my cooking so now I'm proud of what I am cooking. Even the first lesson completely changed my outlook on sauces and explained so eloquently how to do it well and simply. We are not talking about a rehash out of a culinary textbook. We're talking about what really works, what doesn't, and what doesn't matter in the first place. Talk about ergonomic cooking in the kitchen. That's what I was looking for. Truly easy master recipes and where to go from there.

Just what I needed

James is great! He's a lot of fun to watch and I love his voice. He's also a super chef: I have his book Essentials of Cooking, and I love it. As usual, the Craftsy format works really well for bringing to life all the things we amateurs want to learn from the pros. I will watch this class again! Thanks, James!
