MotherSauces Cooking School- Minneapolis

Do you guys have any idea what happened to MotherSauces Cooking School on Lyndale? I got a gift certificate from them last year, and was all set to use it this past weekend (I had a private cooking class set up with them and everything). We arrive on Saturday to a darkened store front and a phone number with a full mailbox. Since then, no one has been picking up the phone and their website seems to have gone dark. Any leads? This has not only been a complete waste of money (I'm hoping I wasn't scammed, but frustrating at best).

  1. I'm guessing the economy happened to them. Expect more of this.

    1. Oh dear! What a disappointment. I emailed them a month ago and did get a response after several days, but it wasn't was you'd call super speedy. Even then I noticed no one ever seemed to answer their phone. Here's the email address I reached them at, in case they are still able to check that.

      Good luck and please let us know what you find out, if anything.


      1. Hey guys, Just read this on the minneapolis magazine blog:


        Mother Sauces cooking school has gone dark. Just as someone e-mailed me a question about it, I got another e-mail with details on the availability of the commercial space. So, bummer if you are holding any gift certificates, but rejoice if you are looking for a 2,500-square-foot, commercial-grade kitchen and retail space.

          Do you know if the space is still commercial kitchen space, or do you have additional information on who I could contact conerning the site?
