Get Saucy
Make Dinner a New Way Every Day with Simple Sauces, Marinades, Dressings, Glazes, Pestos, Pasta Sauces, Salsas, and More

by Grace Parisi

Get Saucy  

Home cooking shouldn't have to mean planning out a week of complicated menus—a quick and easy way to put together a meal is to dress up basics like a chicken breast or pasta with a delicious, flavorful sauce. Sauces are an essential building block in the repertoire of any cook and offer endless variations for weeknight dinners or special occasion meals. with Get Saucy, Grace Parisi provides a comprehensive, accessible collection of 500 sauce recipes designed for the home cook. She shows how whisking a few ingredients together or adding liquid to pan drippings can transform a ho-hum meal into something truly sublime.

This book is an extensive resource for classic and contemporary sauces and a guide to using those sauces to inject variety and flavor into everyday cooking. The recipes for simple sauces, cream sauces, marinades, dressings, glazes, pestos, pasta sauces, salsas, and more are accompanied by headnotes with detailed serving suggestions: turn Sauce Newburg into lobster bisque by thinning it with broth or serve Piña Colada Dessert Sauce over pound cake one night and turn the rest into ice cream for a treat later in the week. The book is bursting with boxes and sidebars offering helpful advice on the best dressings to use for potato salad, the best barbecue sauces to add to chili, the best homemade hot dog condiments, and the best sauces to pour on vanilla ice cream, while a special index at the back lists every sauce according to what it pairs well with. Get Saucy is also chock full of recipes featuring the various sauces, such as Fast Vegetable Stew or Stir-Fried Beef with Scallions and Mushrooms.
