Sauces really make a dish. They elevate them to the next level of deliciousness. You can also elevate a dish to a new level of fanciness by creating one of the classic sauces to go with it. The French can tell you about this as their cuisine revolves around the five mother sauces: Béchamel, Velouté, Espagnole, Sauce Tomat, and Hollandaise.
You’ll be familiar with Béchamel if you enjoy croque monsieurs and lasagnas. You’ll be familiar with Hollandaise if you love your eggs benedict. But have you ever attempted to make any of these at home?
If you’re not so much into the French ones, you can take a sauce trip to Argentina and try their chimichurri sauce made with green herbs, or England to try their bread sauce which actually is made out of stale bread.
With the infographic below you’ll find 12 classic sauces from around the world and how to make them.
