Saga Hill owner and instructor Marianne Miller is a critically acclaimed, award-winning chef and culinary expert equipped with the gastronomic know-how to get cooks of all levels creating expert edibles. The three-hour class takes customers through five courses, focusing on a specific sauce during each course to construct a multifaceted meal. Students sharpen their knowledge of béchamel sauce by creating croque monsieur on toasted sourdough bread before learning about veloute sauce and how to defang the feral limes by sauteing fresh water prawns in a coconut lime sauce. Pupils warm up their pans to practice beef bourguignon with parmesan gnocchi before moving on to create New Zealand mussels with garlic, bacon and beer aioli. Vinaigrette draws the class to a sweet close, with students making a balsamic door county cherry vinaigrette with macerated winter berries over french-vanilla custard.

Saga Hill Cooking & Events

When she’s not hosting radio shows, serving meals at local shelters, or blogging for Minneapolis St. Paul magazine's Foodie File, Le Cordon Bleu–trained chef Marianne Miller helms Saga Hill Cooking & Events. She describes her style as "audacious, yet feminine," adding, "my preparations are often bold, but with a light-handed approach that brings out the natural flavors in each dish." Alongside her staff, she leads culinary classes and parties that shy from incorporating fad kitchen gadgets or diets. Instead, their goal is to teach practical, science-based cooking techniques that can help students prepare simple meals, gourmet treats, or decadent brown-bag lunches.
