Marinades and Sauces

What is the difference between a good piece of chicken and a great one? What makes a regular plate of spaghetti, an amazing plate of spaghetti? It’s all about the marinades and sauces! It is the simplest way to elevate your dishes – whether you are cooking a romantic candlelit dinner or preparing a feast for your family’s Sunday night dinner.


How do you differentiate a marinade from a sauce? Marinades and sauces are essentially the same thing, however marinades are used to tenderize and flavour food before the cooking process, whereas sauces are served on the food. You can begin initially with a marinade, and then cook it on the stove top into a sauce. It is important to cook leftover marinades thoroughly as it comes in contact with raw foods. All you need to do is boil the marinade on the stove top for 10 minutes and let it reduce until it reaches the desired consistency. This method can only be done the day of, and as long as your marinade has been kept in the fridge, otherwise you risk harmful bacteria growing from the raw meat.
