The classic pink sauce, also known as sauce rose is a creamy and tangy sauce that is commonly used in French and Italian cuisine. It is typically made by combining tomato sauce with cream, and often includes additional ingredients such as garlic, onion, and herbs.

The exact origin of the classic pink sauce is unclear, but it is believed to have originated in France in the mid-20th century. The sauce was likely created by chefs who were looking for a way to combine the flavors of tomato sauce and cream in a single dish.

The popularity of the sauce spread quickly throughout France, and it eventually made its way to other parts of the world, including Italy, and the United States, and into at least one of South Africa’s most popular franchise restaurants. Today, the classic pink sauce is a staple in many home kitchens and is often used as a topping for pasta dishes, pizzas, hamburgers, French fries, chips, and salads. It is also a winning combination with our quick and easy Sweetcorn Fritter Recipe.

Today’s pink sauce recipe is a bit unconventional in that it includes a cold drink – who’s ever thought that!? But, it works!!
