Fish Veloute

Velouté, is a classic sauce and regarded as one of the five "mother sauces". While it can be crafted using any white stock, the fish velouté variation specifically incorporates fish stock. Alongside fish, there are other versions such as veal velouté and chicken velouté. Although the sauce can certainly be utilised in its original form, it is commonly enhanced by introducing additional elements. These supplementary ingredients encompass a wide array including herbs, wine, cream, anchovies, shallots, sherry, brandy, mushrooms, and fennel, among others.

Hollandaise Sauce

The combination of Hollandaise sauce and new season asparagus creates a delightful appetiser, while when drizzled over eggs, salmon, and an English muffin, it transforms into a magnificent Eggs Royale. This sauce is highly versatile and can be paired with fish, steak, or vegetables to create delectable dishes.

The fear of making this sauce often discourages people from attempting it, as it has a tendency to split. However, the issue of splitting is not as daunting as it may seem. If the sauce becomes too cold and separates, simply heat the butter before incorporating more. In the event that it overheats and splits, just add an ice cube as a quick fix. Once you have perfected this recipe, you will find yourself wanting to prepare it for your friends on a regular basis, so do not hesitate to give it a try.
