Is about Gravy/Sauces
-_-...... because what is life it out this?!
Some are simple others.....
2 teaspoons of white wine vinegar, 2 teaspoons of English mustard, 600 ml of olive oil (or peanut oil or oil (last more exotic), 1 or 2 tablespoons of cold water
Place the egg yolks, vinegar, and a little salt and pepper in a food processor and mash until the mixture is very thick and creamy. With the machine still working, slowly add the oil. Add the water and mash a little more to stabilize the emulsion. Taste and adjust the seasoning. Transfer to a bottle and refrigerate for up to 3 days.
Olive oil, vinegar (or Balsamic vinegar), salt.
For 3 parts olive oil, a part vinegar and a pinch of salt. Mix everything very well. (You can use used clean jars to store, fill content, close, shake, ready for maximum 10 days (NO MORE THAN 10 DAYS!).
The simpler there is!
Pesto Genovese Sauce (And the original)
250 g Parmesan cheese (Reggiano or Grana Padano, the longer the seasoning is better), 4 garlic cloves, 175 g fresh basil, 75 g pine nuts, 3 dl extra virgin olive oil, 50 g cured sheep's cheese (salted from Preference).
In the shredder cup, chop the cheeses with the garlic (until it looks grainy). Remove and set aside. In the crusher cup chop the basil with the olive oil. Add the pine nuts and cheese to the basil paste and crush just a little more to wrap everything up nicely. There should not be a uniform paste. It should look granulated and even with a few pinnacles. Pour into a container. The olive oil should rise and cover the surface slightly so that the Pesto does not rust. If it does not, add a little more olive oil. Store in a refrigerator or freeze in small portions.
Homemade Tomato Sauce
1 small can of tomato in pieces (or 4 ripe tomatoes, peeled and chopped), 1 onion, 3 cloves garlic, 2 teaspoons sugar, Olive oil, salt, pepper and oregano
Finely chop the onion and garlic and sauté them lightly in the oil. Add the tomato, sugar, salt and pepper. Mix. When boiling, reduce the heat and cook uncovered until the sauce is slightly thick. Stir well, sprinkle with dried oregano and be ready and serve. If you prefer, you can grind everything at the end with the magic wand to have a homogenous sauce. I personally like more with small pieces. (Note: For more flavor, add to sautéed coriander and parsley or basil).
0.5 dl water, 0.5 dl soy sauce, 2 tablespoons fresh grated ginger, 1 tablespoon garlic, minced 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1 small lemon juice or lime juice.
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and stir well.
Half cup of sugar tea, Half a cup of soy sauce tea, 1 cup of saké coffee, 1 cup of mirin coffee.
Mix all ingredients in a small pin and bring to the boil until the liquid is reduced to half. It is a dense, molasses type sauce.
Pear Sauce (For Panacotta)
3 pears, 2 rum covers, 3 water lids.
Peel and peel the pears and cut them into small pieces. Bring them to the boil on a small stick, with water and rum. Bring to a boil over low heat for 2 minutes.
Sauce and to serve warm to contrast with the freshness of Panacotta.
