The five mother sauce
1-Béchamel Sauce Recipe




Béchamel is probably the simplest of the mother sauces because it doesn't require making
stock. If you have milk, flour and butter, you can make a very basic béchamel.

Béchamel is made by thickening hot milk with a simple white roux. The sauce is then
flavored with onion, cloves and nutmeg and simmered until it is creamy and velvety
smooth.

Béchamel can be used as an ingredient in baked pasta recipes like lasagna, and also in
casseroles. But it's also the basis for some of the most common white sauces, cream sauces
and cheese-based sauces. Here are some of the small sauces made from béchamel:

2.   Velouté Sauce Recipe




Velouté is another relatively simple mother sauce. Velouté sauce is made by thickening
white stock with roux and then simmering it for a while. While the chicken velouté, made
with chicken stock, is the most common type, there is also a veal velouté and fish velouté.

Each of the veloutés forms the basis of its own respective secondary mother sauce. For
instance, chicken velouté fortified with cream becomes the Suprême Sauce. Veal velouté
thickened with a liaison of egg yolks and cream becomes the Allemende Sauce. And the fish
velouté plus white wine and heavy cream becomes the White Wine Sauce.

Small sauces from velouté can be derived from the velouté directly, or from each of the
three secondary sauces.
3. Espagnole Sauce Recipe
The Espagnole Sauce, also sometimes called Brown Sauce, is a slightly more complex
mother sauce. Espagnole is made by thickening brown stock with roux. So in that sense it's
similar to a velouté. The difference is that espagnole is made with tomato purée and
mirepoix for deeper color and flavor. Moreover, brown stock itself is made from bones that
have first been roasted to add color and flavor.

The espagnole is traditionally further refined to produce a rich, deeply flavorful sauce
called a demi-glace. The demi-glace is then the starting point for making the various small
sauces. A demi-glace consists of a mixture of half espagnole, half brown stock, which is then
reduced by half.

For a short-cut, you could skip the demi-glace step and make the small sauces directly from
the espagnole. You'll lose some flavor and body, but you'll save time. Here are some
example s of small sauces made from espagnole

4. Hollandaise Sauce Recipe




Hollandaise is unlike the mother sauces we've mentioned so far, but as you'll see, it is really
just a liquid and a thickening agent, plus flavorings. Hollandaise is a tangy, buttery sauce
made by slowly whisking clarified butter into warm egg yolks. So the liquid here is the
clarified butter and the thickening agent is the egg yolks.

Hollandaise is an emulsified sauce, and we use clarified butter when making a Hollandaise
because whole butter, which contains water and milk solids, can break the emulsion.
Clarified butter is just pure butterfat, so it helps the emulsion remain stable.

Hollandaise sauce can be used on its own, and it's particularly delicious on seafood,
vegetables and eggs. But there are also a number of small sauces that can be made from
Hollandaise:
What Are The Mother Sauces?


In the culinary arts, the term "mother sauce" refers to any one of five basic sauces, which are the
starting points for making various secondary sauces or "small sauces."

They're called mother sauces because each one is like the head of its own unique family of sauces.

A sauce is essentially a liquid plus some sort of thickening agent along with other flavoring
ingredients. Each of the five mother sauces is made with a different liquid, and a different thickening
agent — although three of the mother sauces are thickened with roux, in each case the roux is cooked
for a different amount of time to produce a lighter or darker color.

Below we will break down the five mother sauces and show examples of some of the small sauces that
can be made from each mother sauce.

                          Choron Sauce
                          Maltaise Sauce
                          Mousseline Sauce

5. Classic Tomate Sauce




The fifth mother sauce is the classic Tomate Sauce. This sauce resembles the traditional
tomato sauce that we might use on pasta and pizza, but it's got much more flavor and
requires a few more steps to make.

First we render salt pork and then sauté aromatic vegetables. Then we add tomatoes, stock
and a ham bone, and simmer it in the oven for a couple of hours. Cooking the sauce in the
oven helps heat it evenly and without scorching.

Traditionally, the sauce tomate was thickened with roux, and some chefs still prepare it this
way. But in reality, the tomatoes themselves are enough to thicken the sauce. Here are a
few small sauces made from the classic tomate sauce:
