Around the world with 300 sauces Aug. 17 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on
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!

Mostly Good Oct. 23 2009
By Stu George - Published on
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.

Impressive Oct. 1 2009
By M. Schmidt - Published on
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!
