Recipe: Sauce Espagnole

Written by
Anne Willan’s new book is decorated with charming illustrations of kitchen implements, like this one of a chinois.

Anne Willan’s latest book is Secrets from the La Varenne Kitchen, 50 Essential Recipes Every Cook Needs to Know. It is our latest cookbook club pick for KCRW’s Cookbook Club, and Anne stops by Good Food this weekend to discuss some of the lost classics in the book. She says that brown sauces, like the Espagnole Sauce below, are bound to make a comeback. It’s an excellent finish to a perfectly cooked piece of beef.
