A Mother Sauce is a basic recipe that can be used on its own or as a starting point for far-flung variations.
The fundamental components of any sauce are liquid, thickener, and flavoring agents. Each of the Mother Sauces is distinguished by the combination of the basic ingredients. In turn, when the basic ingredients are substituted or enhanced, the result is called a small sauce.
