Who knew sauce makes the meal?
'Get Saucy' has impressed myself and friends alike with easy to prepare sauces which give a rich and unique flavor to ordinary dishes. Recipes as simple as 'garlic butter' or somewhat richer as 'Gorganzola cream sauce' add generally available ingredients together to form an impressive taste that is both recognizable and elusive, but above all delicious. The best thing about the book is the simplicity of ingredients that work together to form a complex taste. I've tried 5 of the recipes so far, and all of them have taken less than 1 hour to prepare and were great. I got this book as a gift because I had,shall we say, cooking mishaps in the past, and what suprised me is that the sauce recipes are really built for combination with meats, chicken, etc. that compose the meal. For example, the marinades work well to soften meat, and all you have to do from there is cook it by any means (oven, grill, etc). So rather than using recipes that don't seem to make sense when you put everything together, in 'Get Saucy' you can put the effort and excitement into the simple sauce recipes and then do the meat cooking part with basic technique, and not get lost in a giant recipe. If you are not convinced, copy down one of the recipes, try it, and then you'll be glad to have bought the book.
