Tip/ guidance to the young chef – Sauce’s Texture “Nape”

Young chefs have definitely heard of the concept of “nape,” but the matter is not always clear—the word’s origin and loose translation is to wrap or cover.

In a classic kitchen, a sauce that has a good texture is usually described as—nape.

How to check:

Simply dip a spoon into the sauce and if the sauce wraps or covers the back of the spoon well, it is at its ideal texture.

Of course, anyone can set for his/her own favorite consistency, either thicker or thinner.

But at least at the start of your journey, strive for “nape.”
