Soups and Sauces

Soups and Sauces

As the Czech saying goes, soup is the basis and sauce tunes up the entire meal!  
Strong bouillon, kulajda (a creamy sweet and sour soup with mushrooms) or delicate cream of fish soup? All this and even more!  
We will teach you how to whip up hollandaise sauce that is a perfect match to asparagus or to make a strong meat bouillon to crown a nice beefy steak.
From basic roux to delicate juices. This course is suitable for home cooks as well as culinary professionals.
If you want to impress your guests, you need to get down the basics first!
