Review:

This book contains 60 recipes for sauces that can be used as a base in dishes, as a topping for dishes, as spreads and condiments, or as marinades and mixes. They are all a part of a meal that adds the zing usually, the flavor, the punch. That without theme, it would just be a boring meal. They are what make world dishes unique and memorable. Stevens starts off with a few basic recipes, like for mayonnaise, and then turns to the world tour, covering all regions! Besides sharing the recipes, he shares little vignets of his life and how the recipes came to him.  

Each recipe includes its prep time and how much it makes, as well as what types of flavors it has (sweet, savory, sour, spicy, creamy), it's heat index, and the type of sauce it is, BEFORE you get to the recipe, so you are warned! Followed by simple instructions, any level of cook can make most of the sauces. Cooks will love seeing the storage info, especially as to how LONG a sauce can keep, as well as repurposing tips for leftover sauce! For international ingredients, there are also tips on where to purchase and how to use them (so make sure you read a recipe thoroughly before deciding to make it, you may need an Amazon order. Lastly, serving and pairing ideas, for recipes in the book, are given, so you know what types of sides (veggies) and mains (meats) go well with each sauce! All in all, it's a great look at different foods from around the world, and what makes them great!


Recipe:

Summer time always means lots of summer squash and zucchini around our area, so this year we have another great way to use it up, by creating this great Ajika sauce, from Belarus, for Fall!
