We all use sauces in cooking. But have you wondered about its history, why we find sauces a necessity and how to explore other tastes?
Sauce is a French word taken from the Latin salsa, meaning salted. Possibly the oldest recorded European sauce is a fish sauce used by the Ancient Greeks, while the Chinese soy bean paste is mentioned in 3rd century BC text.
Are you surprised that sauces have this long a history?
Sauces come in a variety of different styles and consistencies. They can be thick or thin, rich and creamy, or light and delicate. Depending on the purpose, sauces can be strongly flavoured, hot and spicy, or even sweet to be served with a dessert. All over the world sauces add that something extra to any dish, including flavour, moisture, and visual appeal.
Sauces are not normally consumed by themselves. Sauces can be used before cooking as marinades for meats and veggies, the perfect addition to a dish or used as a dipping sauce for finger food. Sauces may be freshly prepared by the cook, especially in restaurants, but today many sauces are sold pre-made and packaged for your convenience.
