In this updated and revised version of his classic sauce compendium, Roux shares the techniques and tips he’s accrued since that first encounter over the course of his brilliant career. He shares decades’ worth of soup-sagesse, wisdom will surely turn your sense of sauce from a mere foundational component of a dish to the liquid sine qua non of great cuisine. Over 200 recipes—and the kind of tips that only come with Chef Roux’s seasoned experience—make this an invaluable resource to chefs in French cuisine and beyond—anywhere, in fact, that perfected, exquisitely prepared sauce has a place on the table.
