Synopsis by Madeline Cavalieri
The Frugal Gourmet, with chef Jeff Smith, is an amazingly thorough video collection with over 80 episodes that include food recipes from around the world. In each episode, Smith demonstrates several simple but important recipes. Sauces make any dish complete and in this episode viewers will learn the basics. There's Greek and Italian Tomato Sauce, Basic Brown Sauce, Sauce Bolognese, Green Sauce for boiled meats, and Chinese Dipping Sauces. Smith not only cooks, but also discusses the theological and anthropological histories of the dishes he prepares. He brings humor and wide-ranging knowledge into the kitchen.
