Mark Driskill, owner and executive chef of Ash Homewood has written a cookbook! Ash is known for their wood-fired original culinary creations but this new cookbook will focus on an often-overlooked but absolutely essential realm of cooking; the sauce!

The book, titled “Essential Homemade Sauces cookbook”, will feature recipes and companion dishes to elevate your meals. The official release date for the book is June 23 but you can pre-order the book on Amazon RIGHT HERE.

The description from the Amazon listing reads:

Add flair and elevate your culinary creations with sensational sauces

Sauces are fun ways to finish dishes with originality and exciting cultural variations. From vinaigrettes to barbeque to curries and even dessert finishings, The Essential Homemade Sauces Cookbook is filled with blends based on cream, eggs, herbs, tomatoes, and much more. Learn how each base ingredient works to create sauces with equally delicious and specific purposes.

From Classic Marinara to Chile-Rubbed Hanger Steak with Classic Chimichurri, each sauce family begins with a basic version before branching out into more unique and interestingly delectable derivatives. Use the pairing charts to learn ideal matches with beef, chicken, lamb―even tofu! As you try each homemade sauce, your familiarity and confidence for sauce making will increase as well. It’s time to get saucy!

Inside you’ll find:

    • Sauce galore―Discover 15 sauce types with 3 recipes for each to appeal to a wide array of tastes, plus 2 companion dishes for each sauce family.
    • Organized by family―In every chapter, each sauce is divided into clear and distinguishable families, an ode to the French mother sauces.
    • Make it your own―Don’t just follow these recipes―experiment with sauces and combinations to build something that’s truly yours.

Learn how accenting flavors elevates meals and expands your options!


Ash Homewood posted an excerpt from the cookbook on their Facebook page that reads:

“Some of the proudest and most guarded recipes across cultures are sauces, each one a distinctive combination of flavors, textures, and aromas. Nearly every culture on the globe eats chicken, but how is that chicken prepared, how is that chicken seasoned, and what else is different about that chicken? Perhaps the greatest question is what sauce goes on that chicken.”
