Winner of the James Beard Foundation Award for Cookbook of the Year for the 1991 First Edition

"It's the single contemporary reference on the subject that is both comprehensive and comprehensible. I love Jim's recipes (and there are gems all over the place here), but what's special about Sauces is the text: it reads so well that this is the kind of book you can take to bed."
-Mark Bittmanfrom the Foreword to the Second Edition

"James Peterson has done for sauces that which Escoffier did for the cuisine of La Belle epoque. . . . Sauces is a manual for the professional cook and, as such, it will rapidly become a classic and indispensable reference."
-Richard Olneyfrom the Foreword to the First Edition

"Here is yet another cookbook that can stand among the best reference works. I suspect it's a harbinger of kindred books as publishers begin to respond to a growing audience of cook-readers who hunger for connected, nuanced, reliably researchedinformation."
-Gourmet magazine

"This is a book I wish I had written myself. . . . Every few decades a book is written that says all there is to say on a subject, or has all the information and passion that sets the standard for professionals and amateurs alike. Sauces is one of the best culinary books of this century in English."
-Jeremiah Tower

"The art of sauce making is the cornerstone of serious cooking. This book is a must for the new generation of creative cooks who wish to build on the classical French foundation with contemporary, delicious variations."
-Daniel Boulud

"It is a special reference book-comprehensive and inspiring."
-Alice Waters

  • Sauces

    This book is only for professional kitchens. Many of the recipes call for 12 to 20 pounds of something to be made in 22 qt stock pots, something which only professional kitchens would have. The recipes also call for 2 or 3 different recipes to be made in order to produce 1 sauce. Again, not something a home cook would ever do. The book is very detailed and extremely informative, but definitely not for the home cook, even an accomplished one.
