I absolutely love this cookbook! The amount of different types of sauces is tremendous. The pictures show the beauty of the finished products and the recipes are easy to make. The ingredients are also easily acquired. I can’t wait to make some of them.
This a wonderful compilation of sauces that most people eat on a day to day basis. Each sauce can transform any plain old everyday dish into something more by adding more substance. The recipes were easy to follow with instructions that anyone should be able to understand. I love a good a sauce and had a fun time preparing a sampling from this cookbook. Salsa is a favorite along with anything influenced by Italian or Asian flavors. Each recipe I tried turned out well and provided me with new recipes to add to my ever growing collection. Another great thing about the book, all the sauces can be frozen and used at a later date. I love to cook so taking a day to make and freeze some of my favorite sauces makes life easier, you never know when you'll have unexpected guests or need to make a quick meal. There were also some wonderful recipe additions at the end that show different ways to in-part more taste to simple butter. So if you are looking for a great barbeque recipe, a tasty salsa, or just something to liven up everyday vegetables this is a great book to help you with all those and more.
