Sauces are one of the key foundations to great cooking and having a good grasp of the five basic mother sauces is something that’s still taught in most culinary classes.
The best thing about sauces is that you really can go anywhere with them and this collection of videos from ChefSteps shows some good examples.
The videos cover a number of different sauces: a wonderful BBQ sauce, a quick pan sauce, red wine sauce, piccata sauce, a cheese sauce and a romesco sauce.
There are instructions on how to create each recipe at home and for those wanting to jump in and learn more, there’s a whole heap of wonderful resources over on ChefSteps.
