'La Sauce Moutarde' is a sauce using whole, ground, cracked, or bruised mustard seeds that are then mixed with water, vinegar, lemon juice, wine, or other liquids, salt, and often other flavourings and spices, to create a paste or sauce ranging in colour from bright yellow to dark brown. The taste of mustard ranges from sweet to spicy.
'La Sauce Diable' is a spicy, tangy, brown sauce traditionally served in France with chicken or poultry. Sauce Diable is used to add some peppery zest to your grilled or roasted chicken, pork, or vegetables.
'La Sauce Tartare' is based on either mayonnaise (egg yolk, mustard or vinegar, oil) or aioli (egg yolk, olive oil, garlic, lemon juice) and popular with Seafood.
The design shows a 'Fondue' cooking pot alongside the long stemmed forks in the center circle and the words 'Filet de Boeuf' at the bottom of the largest section. The colors are classic mid-century modern -bold and striking. The attention to detail is fabulous.......the Burgundy red of chunks of beef and the golden yellow and cobalt blue of the flame pot.........Just wonderful!................
