Usage notes[edit]

What, if anything, the difference between sovs and sauce is, is a matter of some contention. Some use sovs for the viscous sauces traditionally eaten with potatoes in Denmark, and sauce with the sauces introduced when French cuisine became fashionable in Denmark. Others regard the difference as purely psychological, with sovs and sauce carrying connotations of low and high culture, respectively. Others again use the terms interchangeably.
