Wow did you know there are five mother sauces?? Sauce tomate, veloutΓ©, hollandaise, espagnole, and bΓ©chamel.Β  Actually though, you could argue hollandaise is not a true mother sauce. Some people claim that the original french text that gave us the five mother sauces was mistranslated, mayonaise being replaced with hollandaise sauce. Idk why I'm telling you this.
