In cooking there is never one way of creating something. That’s the beauty of it. So when it comes to thickening sauce, cornstarch isn’t the only solution, hello liaison!

Liaison is the process of thickening sauce, stew or soup. A mixture of cream and egg yolks is typically used, with the yolks slowly warmed, or tempered, with hot liquid before adding (to avoid cooking them and ruining their thickening power). Try Hollandaise sauce if you’re more of a visual learner.
