Velouté sauce

velouté sauce  -

Velouté sauce is one of the five main sauce (mother sauce) in French classic cuisine. The velouté sauce is made from a clear broth of chicken, fish or veal and thickened with a roux (a mixture of butter and wheat flour).

Velouté comes from the French language which literally means "velvet" because of its subtle texture. From the velouté sauce can be made some derivative sauce, including Suprême sauce (from chicken and creamy Velouté sauce), Allemande sauce (from veal Velouté sauce and cream) and white wine sauce (from Velouté fish and white wine sauce).
