Things are getting saucy. For the April 2016 Meet & Eat, we’re going to be joined by Susan Volland, the author of Mastering Sauces! This book is full of inspired and delicious sauces like this coconut “butter,” using classic South Asian flavors like turmeric and brown mustard to add a little zing to coconut oil.

From the Author: In South India, coconut oil is the cooking oil of choice. Many dishes are garnished with a drizzle of coconut oil, popped black mustard seeds, crispy fried curry leaves, and frizzled small red onions. I like to stir these wonderful ingredients together like a compound butter and spread or melt it on various foods as the whim strikes: on savory pancakes, pilafs, or grilled whole fish.
