Our Story

Sauce first opened the doors in November 2011.

Our building at 1 Station Street had a presence, a history and the desire to be loved. Originally a granary, the building was 100 years old when we commenced our refurbishment and restoration. This beautiful building has seen about sixteen changes of tenants and varied uses.

An enormous amount of planning, revisions and liaising with builders, painters, plumbers and chefs saw the interior refurbished over the next few months. Family and friends put their backs to the grind to establish our garden... which continues to evolve and grow.

A sauce may only be as exciting and delicious as the chef that creates it. Once again, 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 and we are lucky to have enthusiastic, knowledgeable and dedicated staff.

We will continue to strive to meet your expectations and be a complete source of all things kitchen.

    It was the best entertainment I have had for a long time and I learned heaps too. Tony's directions were given in an easy going way and his stories were enjoyable. We had a choice about participating or not. The food cooked was great. Especially the desert. Guess who has a sweet tooth? We thought that we would do another class with Tony towards the end of the year but there is none planned. It turned out to be a great girls night out.

    Marbeling - this was fantastic. Mary also told us of different methods of using fondant and making colours and useful tips such as the layers sticking together and which tools were much more useful. Very happy with the class and look forward to the next one, A very enjoyable experience and learnt so much of what is available

    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

    Kate is a great trainer. All processes thoroughly explained. There was lots of time for hands on practise & several different coffee styles were also explained. Highly recommended.
