3 french mother sauces
1. Bechamel - roux and milk
2. Veloute - roux and clear stock
3. Hollandaise - traditionally egg yolks , butter and acid - lemon juice or white wine (could serve with vegan eggs benedict with the tomato sauce, asparagus and hollandaise, chives ) - in our vegan version we make an emulsion like vegan mayo with pinch of turmeric and Nutritional yeast.
Katsu CurryOrigin; Traditionally Katsu curry started in Japan at the turn of the 20th century or a bit earlier as “Tonkatsu” a crispy breaded pork cutlet with a curry sauce. Possibly curry was first brought to japan by British soldiers from India. The Japanese call western or non Japanese dishes made in the Japanese style “yoshoku” Curry is now nearly as popular as Ramen in Japan. And Katsu curry is a thick sweet curry sauce that we serve here with breaded crispy sweet potato in place of the traditional breaded pork.
