The SAUCE Cooking School

Cooking School

Cooking classes for every level and every possible kitchen and tableware item await you at The Sauce Kitchen . Situated centrally in the CBD of Toowoomba, Sauce offers an experience for both the keen kitchen chef and shopper. Soak up the renovated interior of this beautiful heritage building while browsing through the shelves of pots, pans, glassware, crockery, napery and all things related to cooking and dining.

Come in and enjoy some beautiful baking and a fresh Vivo coffee or tea while browsing in our kitchenwares. Organise a group or join our small groups to experience hands-on cooking classes from specialty baking to three course dining.

Behind the Scenes

Our building at 1 Station Street is thought to be the original grain merchants building erected in 1911, the interior exposed beams and open plan of the building has set the stage for a beautiful space. Fisher and Paykel supported us from the outset with a long list of their products in our cooking school.

Caesarstone added a very ‘polished’ look to our cooking area and Hettich beautified the way everything glides open and shut.

In the background of this beautiful space we are able to fill the area with products from kitchen tools to functional pots and pans and beautiful, creative pieces to be treasured. Our working motto is that if you need it in the kitchen or on the table we should stock it! Enter the chefs - inspired people to guide participants through our classes.

    I just wanted to say thank you very much for the beautifully presented and delicious catering you and The Sauce Kitchen team did for us yesterday. It was just wonderful to know it was going to arrive as it did all ready to go.

    Lots of great compliments on the food and presentations but most importantly, Helen, John & Robert's mother, was really happy with it all and the fact that there was enough!! I think she has carried fears of undercatering from a previous experience so it was great to be able to put them to rest!

    Thank you so much for such a special treat.

    Tony was amazing.  He shares so much, so freely and we all learnt so much from him.

    Can't wait for the next class.

    HI Robyn, just to say thank you so very much, and if you could pass on my thanks to Sharyn and everyone that was involved in organising Lizzie’s birthday party.  It was just fabulous, and you had obviously made such a special effort to make it lovely for her (orange balloons, anyone?).  The food was delicious and lovely Andrew pushed them along so well, it was just amazing

    What a fabulous couple of hours! I had no real knowledge of cheese making until this class and was surprised to find out just how easy it was. I can't wait to use my new kit. The fresh warm ricotta and herbed haloumi were to die for! Thank you so much Sasha for opening up a whole new world of cooking.

    I purchased the cooking class as part of my daughter's birthday present and she was delighted with the experience. She went on to cook baked ham and trifle for our family Christmas dinner. The course was excellent value for money and the instructor was wonderful with the children.

    I am better informed about Mexican cooking. I was until the class only familiar with commercial Mexican fare but the class allowed me to have a deeper understanding of the origins of the Mexican meal. Tony did a great job in allowing the class to participate in the cooking. I also learnt what to expect in taste from Mexican food now. The meal together was awesome. Thank you
