Getting started video..spiced tomato sauce..says add cornstarch mixture..need recipe for cornstarch mixture
In looking into the video and the recipe what chef Michael was describing is a slurry (1 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch to 1 tablespoons of cold water) that would be added to the sauce to give a glossy finish. This is reference in our PRO 300 cookbook. Our website recipe has omitted the slurry as it is not a critical step in making a delicious sauce.
