We all can get into an eating rut, pressed by time, turning to the same-old boring standbys. This book aims to break that cycle. The secret is in the sauce. A great sauce has the ability to transform even the humblest ingredients. But a great sauce does not have to be complicated. Gone are the days when sauce meant mainly a concoction based on butter, flour, and stock. This book sets out the new classics: sauces that are simple to make yet deliver maximum flavor. Secret Sauces gives you an arsenal of mother sauces that fit today's kitchen and are infinitely adaptable. Each one can be made in advance and then customized to enliven different meals throughout the week. With every sauce comes a recipe for a full finished dish that's an ideal showcase, followed by many ideas for other uses. Roasted Sweet Potato Wedges come alive drizzled with Bengali Spiced Yogurt. Seared Red Snapper rises to a new level with Grilled Pineapple and Chipotle Salsa. Coconut Lemongrass Cream finishes off Fruit and Cake Kebabs. Rooted in cuisines from around the world, these sauces rely on fresh components that come together in a flash, enabling you to elevate everyday dishes with a minimum of effort.
