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!

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.

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!

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.

I am new to marinades and rubs and I think this book is great!

The Intro explains the tools and equipment to have and what they are used for. This section explains common and other ingredients, such as oils, vinegars, sugars, dairy, produce, vegetables, spices, herbs, seasonings, extracts, nuts, seeds, chocolate, lettuces and more. The author describes what each item is like, what it is for, where to buy it in the store and what to look for when buying it. This info is perfect for a beginner like me!

As the title implies, there are 500 recipes for sauces, dressings, marinades, rubs, spreads, condiments, salsas, relishes, stock and more! There is a brief summary at the beginning of each section. The recipes give tips, indicates how much the recipe will make, suggests what type of meat to use the recipe with, lists the ingredients needed and the steps on how to make it.

There are a few charts too. A Meat Marinade Chart suggests the type of meat, type of marinade to use and the marinating time. An Internal Temperature for Cooked Meats chart lists types and cuts of meat and the internal temperatures for doneness. A Pairing Sauces with Pasta chart indicates the type of sauce and suggested pastas to use. There are Barbecue Sauces and Dry-Semidry Rubs charts too, which list the type of meat and the suggested sauces or rubs to use and how to use them.

The recipes seem very simple with everyday ingredients. I am a beginner and I don't see many off the wall or hard to get ingredients, like I find in most books. I have most of the ingredients for many recipes, but I will still have to go to the store for some ingredients, especially fresh ones. Overall, the recipes look like they will be easy to make and delicious.
