Chinese White Sauce is very different from the mildly flavoured Continental version, although it also has a creamy consistency and a pleasant white colour. This vibrant sauce is made of clear vegetable stock, thickened with cornflour and perked up with typical Oriental flavorings like ginger and garlic.

This luscious and tongue-tingling sauce is used in the preparation of exciting soups, snacks and vegetable preparations.
