Everything is Better with Sauce

What would your Sunday roast be without the hearty addition of an excitingly smooth sauce? What would your berry crumble be without a silky vanilla sauce? A lot less exciting, satisfying, and well-rounded in our opinion. We’ve all had thin, runny sauces on our plates at least once in our lifetime, which lacked the thick consistency of a rich homemade sauce. Sauces that run off the plate are now a thing of the past, as it only requires water and a starchy ingredient to thicken a seriously good base and turn it into a delicate, smooth sauce. Watch the video to find out how it’s done, and then let your imagination run free to create your own sauces.
