A sauce is a flavorful liquid that is usually thickened. A sauce is used to add flavor, moisture, richness and appearance to foods. Sauces also add an interesting and complex level to many foods. Sauce making techniques are basic skills but they take practice to master. Many of the best sauces are made from stocks. To finish a sauce most Chefs use a chinoise, it makes a sauce perfectly smooth and more refined. Every Chef knows from experience that a good sauce will compliment and enhance good food!
