3. Allemande Sauce Recipe

The Allemande Sauce (which is also sometimes called "German Sauce") is a finished sauce made by thickening a veal velouté with a mixture of egg yolks and heavy cream called a liaison. It can be served with veal, poached chicken, vegetables or eggs.

4. Lyonnaise Sauce Recipe

In classical cooking, anything "Lyonnaise" indicates that there are onions involved. Thus, the Lyonnaise Sauce is a demiglaze-based sauce made with onions and white wine vinegar. It pairs well with grilled and roasted poultry dishes.

5. Hungarian Sauce Recipe

The Hungarian Sauce is made by reducing white wine with sautéed onions and paprika, and then adding either chicken velouté or veal velouté sauce. The Hungarian Sauce is an ideal accompaniment for sautéed chicken.

6. Aurora Sauce Recipe

The Aurora Sauce is a creamy tomato sauce that goes beautifully with eggs, vegetables and pasta dishes, and it's also fantastic with poached chicken. It's made by adding tomato purée to a basic Suprême Sauce or Allemande Sauce.

7. Poulette Sauce Recipe

The Poulette Sauce is a creamy, tangy mushroom sauce for chicken and poultry dishes. The word poulette is from the French word for "pullet," which refers to a young hen. The Poulette Sauce is made by adding sautéed mushrooms, chopped parsley and lemon juice to a basic Allemande Sauce.
