Overview

The Complete Book of Sauces
"...for those who like to jazz up grilled chicken, fish or meat with a sauce or salsa, take a look at The Complete Book of Sauces."—Los Angeles Daily News

It's Easy to Make a Different Dish Every Night With over 300 recipes, The Complete Book of Sauces can help you turn your ordinary dinner into a delicious meal. Author Sallie Y. Williams includes white sauces, wine sauces, marinades and barbecue sauces, salad dressings, sweet sauces for desserts, and fruit sauces. A variety of new, mouth-watering sauces to enhance your favorite dishes-like Jalapeño Vinaigrette, Dijon Yogurt Dressing, Fresh Vegetable Salsa, Garlic and Honey Marinade, and Gingered Pear Sauce-are a snap to create. Classic recipes-such as Hollandaise and Bechamel-are represented here as well, some with quick blender versions, and all of them reworked for ease of preparation. Other features include step-by-step instructions, storage advice, special sauce tips, and a cross-indexing section that pairs sauces and dishes to make meal planning a breeze.

Williams takes readers through the basics of sauce-making and provides special tips on each kind of preparation, with cross indexes that match the sauces according to their compatibility with meats, poultry, fish, vegetables, pasta, and desserts. Includes over 300 recipes for white and brown sauces, tomato-based sauces, mayonnaises, fruit and sweet sauces, and more. 80 illustrations.

    Great resource book for the basics & unusual.

    I have bought three copies of this book, two of which I gave as gifts after I got to love my copy. It is a nice, simple-texted book that is organized according to type of sauce as well as suggested sauces for meats, veggies, salads, fruit, dessert, etc. I reach for this book a lot!

    Simple recipes that anyone can use to spice up your meals!

    I like to cook, but I am not too sophisticated. This book has great sauces for all meals that are easy to prepare and look scrumptious!
