Sauce Making Tips

The philosophy of a sauce, when understood, enables even an untrained cook to make a great variety of every day sauces from materials usually found in every kitchen.
Here is a handful of tips to help you create your own sauce recipes.

  1. To have your sauces uniform, flavourings must be correctly blended, and measurements must be rigidly observed.
    Two level tablespoonfuls of butter or other fat, two level tablespoonfuls of flour, should be used to each 300 ml of liquid.
  2. If the yolks of eggs are added, omit one tablespoonful of flour or the sauce will be too thick.
  3. Tomato sauce should be flavoured with onion, a little mace, and a suspicion of curry.
  4. Brown sauce may be simply seasoned with salt and pepper, flavored and colored with kitchen bouquet.
  5. Spanish sauce should also be flavoured with mushrooms, or if you can afford it, a truffle, a little chopped ham, a tablespoonful of chives, shallot and garlic.
  6. Water sauce, drawn butter and simple sauce Hollandaise, when they are served with fish, should be flavoured with a dash of tarragon vinegar, salt and pepper.
