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. http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/5952... 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. info@mothersauces.com

      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?
