About This Book:

Since the author of this book, Sauces received his chef training in France so there is no surprise to find out that this book contains a lot of information on French sauces and their step by step sauce making instructions. These include:

  • Velouté
  • Béchameld
  • Emi-glace
  • Hollandaise
  • Mayonnaise
  • Crème Anglaise and many more.

This book also contains a variety of contemporary sauces such as pan sauces, purees, salsas, pasta sauces as well as Asian curry sauces. This book contains not just the recipes of sauces but it provides complete dish recipes too. This is something that other cookbooks on the same subject do not offer and it also gives this book the upper hand in showing how food and sauce making are closely related and thus proving the point on how a wisely prepared sauce can add five stars to a well cooked meal.
