What are the best obvious sauces (or anything) to get into different cultures of foods easily...

Kenneth Fort Kenneth Fort
For example, what I mean is; everyone knows what soy sauce is... but I just visited some people, and had for the first time fish sauce, and various other things which were relatively unheard of to me at the time. And it made me realize that the wildly differing cultures of foods you get at restaurants can probably indeed be made somewhat at home if you really tried, (though obviously not as good.).

If it helps though, I'm specifically thinking of middle eastern food. Types of things you could keep around and... well, why not. Go crazy, and mix into anything.

This site "Middle Eastern Food" has detailed introductions to various Middle Eastern sauces along with their recipes. Middle Eastern sauces are concocted with various herbs and spices, rather than with a particular "sauce".

Cooking is not as simple as keeping one basic sauce around - a lot of other ingredients are required. I suggest you to give Indian Curry a try - just buy a jar of ready-to-use curry sauce at any supermarket and follow the simple instructions on the bottle to cook up a tasty curried recipe.

I love curry sauce. My step-family is from Pakistan and makes amazing curry and spicy dishes. It's a great step into Middle Eastern food.
