Item DetailsIn the 1970s, ‘80s and ‘90s Nouvelle cuisine replaced the Haute and Classic cuisine movements with cream and butter replacing meat stocks and rich sauces. Broths, deglazed pans, simple vinaigrettes and sweet and savory purees made sauces lighter and more delicate, under-and-around embracers rather than over-the-top smotherers. Artistic smears across Michelin- starred plates arrived and the Fusion movement gave us dipping sauces before Molecular Gastronomy offered us foams, gels and dehydrated ‘soils’ as sauce replacements. Volume 3 of The Culinary Library, with over 300 recipes, embraces all of these saucy characters, even the quirky ones. For beginners and professional cooks who want to know everything about the world of sauce making this is the ultimate reference and cookbook.
