Cold sauces are essential in cold starters or entremets. With each bite, they add the exact amount of fat, airiness, sweet, or sour flavour and texture to create a fusion of flavours in the mouth. Cold sauces can also create a piquant effect to balance high-fat components or dishes. Mayonnaise is a much-used basis in the classic kitchen for the preparation of many different cold sauces. There is also a large variety of sauces based on vegetables, herbs, and oils.
