Sauces are a separate culinary world. For example, the French think that sauce in the dish is the most important thing. Often, the amount of their ingredients exceeds ten or even twenty. They are so different: pasta sauces, salad sauce, fish sauce, meat, game – you can not list them… But you can make them!
If you have decided to be a real boss in your own little kitchen, learn from the best and their discoveries. Top chefs from restaurants with Michelin stars have their own recipes for even the most popular sauces:
