SHARYN DONALDSON

Sharyn is the owner and brains behind The Sauce Kitchen. As a passionate cook and lover of all things kitchenalia, she jumped at the opportunity to begin a business in Toowoomba which incorporated the best of the retail experiences more commonly seen in Sydney or Melbourne, or even overseas.

KATE VANDERPLAS

Kate Vanderplas is our resident Barista and has had over 20 years’ experience off and on in the coffee and restaurant industry. She is a primary school teacher that always fell back on coffee making when living in different locations around Australia. "I just felt so at home serving coffee to customers early in the morning and knowing that I had just started their day with a chat and smile, it is something quite personal and I love it!"

KATHY COULTER

Kathy has been part of Sauce since it opened and she is an integral part of our shop floor staff. Her knowledge about kitchen gadgetry is encyclopedic, and as a mother of five, she is very practical in her kitchen equipment choices. She also makes a fine coffee and will look after you so well when you visit the cafe space.

    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
