I love Jims recipes (and there are gems all over the place here), but whats 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 EditionJames 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 EditionHere is yet another cookbook that can stand among the best reference works. I suspect its 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 magazineThis 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 TowerThe 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 BouludIt is a special reference book-comprehensive and inspiring.-Alice Waters
