Knew I was out about a day after I submitted when I went back and reread the question. Classic case of going too quickly.

I think the last answer was my only good one. My only chance of finishing in the top half is if everyone else sheeped on two of the mother sauces, or missed the question entirely.

Very close, except that Sauce Espagnole was better known than I thought!

My abysmal performance suggests that those things I think "No one is going to say that" are exactly the things that (almost) everyone does remember...and submit as their answer.
