A. Choose seasonings and flavorings. Choose a basic sauce to prepare. Review the list of herbs and spices and investigate how they are used with various foods.

B. Decide on the details. Decide which spices or herbs will produce the unique flavor your team wants for its sauce. Also, decide on the best time to add your seasonings to produce the maximum flavor.

C. Prepare your sauce. Cook your sauce, adding the seasonings you have chosen. Write down the ingredients and amounts used, and the steps you took when you prepared the sauce. When you are satisfied with the sauce, write out the recipe for others to use.

D. Do a taste test. Taste every team's sauce. Evaluate each sauce, and keep a record of your evaluations.

Share your team's sauce with the class. Evaluate each team's sauce for flavor, color, and texture. Use the following rating scale to score each team's sauce: 1 = Poor; 2 = Fair; 3 = Good; 4 = Great.
