In cooking, a Liaison is used for thickening sauces. Liasions can be added to any sauce type.

Before using a liaison, remember that egg yolks curdle from direct contact with hot liquid.

To properly make a liaison, whisk together one part egg yolk and three parts Heavy Cream. Temper the mixture by adding a small amount of hot liquid, while stirring.
