Parsley Sauce

A parsley sauce is a white sauce to which some fresh, finely chopped parsley has been added for colour and flavour.

It's a very old sauce in terms of English cooking. English cookery had many green sauces up until the end of the Middle Ages. Parsley sauce, along with mint sauce, may perhaps be the sole survivors still left in English kitchens.

It's very good with fish and poached foods.

Nutrition

Same as for white sauce: the nutritional levels depend on what kind of milk you use and whether you are making a thin, medium or thick sauce.


Generally, parsley sauce / white sauce is somewhat fattening, unless you use a package mix which home ingredients can't compete with in that regard.

Bon mots

"I'm a man. Men cook outside. Women make the three-bean salad. That's the way it is and always has been, since the first settlers of Levittown. That outdoor grilling is a manly pursuit has long been beyond question. If this wasn't firmly understood, you'd never get grown men to put on those aprons with pictures of dancing wienies and things on the front..."

-- William Geist (New York Times writer & CBS Journalist. 10 May 1945 - )
