5 Mother Sauces from French Cuisine | KaTom Blog

French cuisine includes five mother sauces, which are essential to making many famous dishes and can work as bases for various other sauces.

This poulet Breton recipe from chef Steve Groves is a fine example of traditional French cookery. Chicken pieces are simmered in a sauce flavoured with cider, crème fraiche and mustard. This dish is best cooked in a single pan to retain all of the flavours, and it’s best to keep all the chicken pieces on the bone, as this means the meat will be moister and the sauce more flavourful. Serve with some potatoes on the side for a full meal.
