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
