Description: The hallmark of an accomplished chef is a thorough knowledge of the sauces great and small. Here's a guide that will put this knowledge at your fingertips.
The Sauce Bible is the most complete "how to" available on one of the most basic yet complex areas of culinary art. Here, in clear, step-by-step detail, are over 600 recipes for preparing sauces, stocks and other accompaniments, from classic recipes to current innovations, plus over 50 recipes for dishes to serve them with.
Lavishly illustrated with 16 full-color photos, The Sauce Bible goes beyond ordinary sauce cookbooks to present not just sauce recipes, but the recipes for the primary meals enhanced by the sauces described here. There's even a chapter on sauce painting, the use of two or more sauces to create a beautiful pattern on the plate. This is the first complete "how to" available on this decorative technique.
You'll discover the entire family tree of sauces -- many surprisingly simple -- beginning with the classic French "mother sauces" and presenting all of their traditional derivatives, plus many inspired contemporary variations. You'll even find other accompaniments such as chutneys, compotes, coulis, salsas, flavored vinegars, relishes, and dessert sauces.
