Quality Sauces

Can you get me a Chef/5 Star Restaurant quality recipe, light Brown Gravy? Seafood Newburg Sauce? & Gumbo Roux?

Hi Donald,

I think the best recipes start with knowing the basics behind sauce making. Here's an article I wrote on it a few years back, which includes recipes for the 4 of the 5 basic sauces from which all others are made.

In the first recipe from the March 11 newsletter, the Cajun Crawfish and Shrimp Etouffe starts with a type of Gumbo Roux you could use in other recipes.
