Caramel sauce is arguably the “mother” sauce of dessert, with its unique capacity to enhance fruit, chocolate, confection, cake or cream. Sure, it’s sweet and unctuous, but what makes it so compelling culinarily is its complex bitterness. The bitter sharpens other flavors in a dessert through contrast and complement. As important and useful as caramel is, making it can feel daunting. In this workshop with Milk Street’s Matt Card, you will work though the fundamentals of a basic and classic caramel sauce, learning the science, equipment and technique needed to create perfect caramel every time. With the basics understood, you will learn to make a flavorful array of caramel variations, like ones using orange juice, coffee, chai spices and even crème fraîche. If you love making desserts and want to add a fundamental baking technique to your repertoire, join Matt and learn the mother of all dessert sauces.
