A saucier (French pronunciation: [sosje]) or sauté chef is a position in the classical brigade style kitchen. It can be translated into English as sauce chef. In addition to preparing sauces, the saucier prepares stews, hot hors d'œuvres, and sautés food to order. Although it is often considered the highest position of the station cooks, the saucier is typically still tertiary to the chef and sous-chef.
Sauciers in popular culture
In Futurama, Bender Bending Rodriguez gets a job at Elzar's restaurant (to pay off Planet Express's presumed free meal). He asks Elzar if he can be "pastry chef, saucier, soup guy". Instead, Elzar hands him a toilet plunger, using his catchphrase "Bam!" in Bender Gets Made.
