Definition of Coulis

Definition: Coulis

Coulis
French for "strained liquid," coulis is a thick, evenly textured sauce that can be either sweet or savory and is made from puréed, strained fruits or vegetables. The sauce, which may also be frozen for future use, is used in a wide range of dishes, from meat roasts to chocolate desserts. Raspberry and other variations of coulis, such as berry, mint, and tomato, were a critical part of the nouvelle cuisine that was popular in the 1980s.

i'm only familiar with 'sweet' coulis but it's nice to know that it does have the savory counterpart. i think that in just about every cooking competition show, someone makes a coulis, and there's always comments about the straining technique.
