A separately-prepared cooking liquid or condiment served with other food.
Broadly, a sauce might be defined as almost any liquid food. Please use this tag only for those requiring preparation and generally served or mixed with a different, solid food.
Avoid using the tag for any of the following:
- Soups, stocks, and broths; use the soup, stock, or broth tag instead, even if it is intended to be used as a sauce.
- Well-known preparations generally referred to by other names (e.g. salsa, salad-dressing).
- Jams, jellies, and other preserves (use jam or a similar corresponding tag).
Please do consider adding a sub-tag if referring to a well-defined sauce or category of sauce - for example, bechamel or hollandaise.
