A saucery was the office in a medieval household responsible for sauces, as well as the room in which the preparation of sauces took place. It was headed by a saucerer. The office was subordinated to the
kitchen, and only existed as a separate office in larger households. It was closely connected with other offices of the kitchen, such as the spiceryand the scullery. [cite book | first = C.
