Book Description

Oct. 16 2012
For many, the idea of making at home the kind of sauces we enjoy in restaurants can be downright scary. But it's a lot easier than you might think: once you understand the various sauce "families" and have mastered a few basic techniques, it will open up the way to making a multitude of different sauces, and even creating your own versions. The book is divided into five geographical regions: France; Europe and the Mediterranean; the Americas; Asia; and the Pacific Rim. There is also a chapter on fusion food, and one on sweet sauces.

5.0 out of 5 stars Around the world with 300 sauces Aug. 17 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have lived on 6 continents in the last 10 yrs. I wanted a book that offered recipes for the sauces from all the places I had been, so I could easily reproduce them in my very small and minimalist kitchen here in Asia.
I was not disappointed in this book. The recipes are simple and easy to follow and they tasted just like the ones I had had in the different locations I had been. The ingredients were surprisingly easy to find or to order.
For someone who HAS to have recipe books with pictures, this book offers high quality pictures for almost all the recipes. A lot of the recipes come with additional alternatives.
We had a beach BBQ last week and in 2 hrs I whipped up a dozen dips, sauces or salsas to impress my guests who had themselves lived all over. There were lots of "ooohs and aaahs", people reminiscing the foods they had had in the past.I am very grateful to the author for such an outstanding piece of work: Highly recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars Mostly Good Oct. 23 2009
By Stu George - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Lots of great recipes for sauces, lots of good photos. Classic French sauces are the bulk when compared to other chapters. Also very little on Indian sauces, 10 variations on mayonnaise, 10 variations of herb butter, but not even something simple like Korma or Makhani!

Everyone is well represented (ok, The uk get two recipes) except the huge landmass that comprises of Inda/Pakistan/Sri Lanka and the wonderful sauces they have.

Selection aside, the recipes are presented well and packed into the book with fairly clear directions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Impressive Oct. 1 2009
By M. Schmidt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have always been intimidated by sauces. Not only did this book inspire me to branch beyond my comfort zone, it has been an absolute pleasure! By learning how a few ingredients and simple techniques can elevate my culinary repetoire, I am never looking back. I found "The Sauce Book" so beautiful, so impressive that I'm lending it to a friend who is Executive Chef of a restaurant that is a Zagat's-rated 24 for Food. After a couple of days though, he'd better get his own copy!
