  1. Sauces : Classical and Contemporary Sauce Making, James Peterson.


    1. I will second the rec on the Peterson book. Every sauce I have made using his recipes and methods have been perfect. I made the Bearnaise recipe for Christmas dinner to go along with a tenderloin roast and the compliments that I received for it were endless.

      No need to look further than this.

      1. Peterson is excellent and certainly qualifies as "all you need." However, I would hate to have to live without Raymond Sokolov's "The Saucier's Apprentice."
