Thumbnail recipes for all major contemporary sauces, including reductions, coulis (puree), li's (starch-thickened), vinaigrettes, and emulsions are here. Modern "mother" sauces such as mustard vinaigrettes feature variations perfect for fish and seafood, vegetable dishes, meats, pastas, and salads. B chamel, velout , espagnole (brown sauce), tomato sauce, and hollandaise include secondary sauces created by adding just a few flavorings. Condiments, salsas, dressings, and dips feature suggested illustrations, simple mini recipes, and recommendations for pairings. Plus cooked bean dips with aromatics and finishing herbs to match five key bean varieties. Classic stocks, such as blond chicken stock, brown veal stock, and white wine-laced fish fumet stand alongside stocks of emerging world cuisines like Japanese dashi, American vegetable broths, and Indian curry stocks. All essential but easily do-able recipes. This guide is a must-have for every ambitious home cook and savvy professional.
