A dish without sauce can feel incomplete, rushed, or soulless. Cantonese sauces are super-versatile, adding texture, taste, spice, and contrast to your dishes. Join Elaine Sher in class to learn how to make three classic Cantonese sauces to level-up your stir fry, stews, dumplings, noodles and more. In class you’ll make dry-fried string beans with spicy XO sauce; steamed kabocha and spareribs with fermented black bean sauce; and homemade knife-shaved noodles tossed in scallion oil. You’ll learn how to ferment your own black beans, use dried seafood to get every ounce of flavor into your XO sauce, and turn the humble scallion into an unforgettable, flavor-packed deliciousness.
