O'migosh! What a wealth of good things in here. The most simple basic dishes can be jazzed up with a different sauce, marinade, rub, etc., and this book has enough to last a lifetime.sauce, dressing, marinade cookbook What a great gift for a new or experienced cook! My refrigerator now has half a dozen containers of delicious, easy to make sauces and dressings which give me a different menu any time I want. What could be easier than taking the same protein or vegetable and changing it simply by changing the topping! I love how the author(s) have suggested what to use it for, and whether it can be frozen or not. That's very helpful, indeed. Bon Appetit!

Very nice book, professional recipes, yet easy to follow, and execute, recommended for both professionals, and home cooks, this book exceeded my expectations, bought it because my brother asked me to find a good dressing, and sauce book, for him(he is a chef), I ended by ordering another one for myself !!!

My refrigerator was once crammed with dozens of store-bought sauces, dressings and condiments. No more. I've ditched all the boring bottled stuff. Newly-released 500 Best Sauces, Salad Dressings, Marinades & More by Certified Culinary Professional George Geary proves that creating homemade delectable dressings and savory sauces doesn't have to be daunting.

A marathon of marinades take taste buds around the globe from South-of-the-Border to the Deep South and Asia to the Caribbean. A sensational slate of salad dressings and vinaigrettes, like Pecan Pesto Dressing, pleases palates. Rubs and barbecue sauces run the grilling gamut from All-American to exotic flavors. Infused butters and made-from-scratch condiments spice up everything from biscuits to burgers. More than 50 pasta sauces turn angel hair to ziti into mouth-watering masterpieces. Dessert sauces such as Deep Dark Truffle Sauce are worth every mouth-watering calorie. And, tons of timely tips make menu pairings a breeze.

As an avid foodie, I highly recommend 500 Best Sauces, Salad Dressings, Marinades & More as a gift for cooking enthusiasts or addition to any cookbook collection. Time to start dinner. On tonight's menu: Cabernet Sauvignon Vinaigrette, Bolognese Sauce with Fettuccine and White Chocolate Macadamia Midnight Sauce over cheesecake.

I finally caved in and purchased this book after I found myself checking it out from the library for a third time. It comes in very handy when deciding what to make for dinner. I love to open a random page, choose a sauce and work back words from there; rather than starting with a meat and figuring out what to flavor it with. The salad dressing recipes have turned out delicious! (roasted garlic vinaigrette or green goddess are my favorites so far) I highly recommend this book it's a keeper.

I looked all over for this book. Amazon has been sold out. Luckily I found it at chef central in paramus nj today.
Love that it covers everything from marinades to dressings to dessert toppings.. and that is only a few. I love penne ala vodka and make a sauce I just love,but wanted to try the one in the book. Although, the color was almost white compared to the "pink" sauce..it was excellent. Flavors were delish and nice and creamy. I used the fresh roma tomatoes as recipe suggested. When I noticed the color was so light.. i went ahead and grabbed half a can diced tomatoes..hoping the color would change to pink. It didn't at first,but after a bit.. maybe 10min of sitting it turned a light pink color..so who knows..again flavors were excellent. Book is excellent.. you will love having in your cookbook collection.

Was so pleased with the book I bought my son that I kept it and ordered another for him. There's a sauce to dress up every meal.

Old and new sauces, marinades, rubs, chutneys, dips, dressings. You name it, it's here.

If you know basic food preparation, with these recipes you can create an almost infinite variety of dishes. If I'd had this years ago, I probably could have skipped many of the cookbooks on my shelves.

This would be perfect paired with a cookbook that teaches cooking techniques would be a perfect gift for someone who is starting their culinary education. They would use this one for a lifetime.

And no, this review isn't from the author or publisher, the cookbook is just that good!
