A classic. Simple, clear, practical...but what really lifts this book to the top is Brigdale’s masterful photography. I would go so far as to say that he inspired M&S for that advertising campaign. Bright, bold and sensual photos inspiring the reader to make the food. A must have for home and professional cook alike. An abridged saucier’s handbook. One can rarely go wrong with a Roux involved.

Although we also have Michel Roux's Eggs and Pastry books, it's the Sauces one that is grabbed off the shelf most often -- a straightforward and easy-to-follow guide to all the classic French sauces.

A brilliant cookbook on sauces, has greatly stimulated my exploration of various types of sauces.
