    If you mean A roux, it's a combination of fat/butter and flour.  Adding liquid to it makes it a sauce.

    I've never heard a translation. English-speaking people who cook a lot know the word and use it as it is, usually pronouncing it "roo".

    A "roux" is a mixture of butter and flour that is the base for a white sauce. You melt the butter and stir in the flour and let it cook for a couple of minutes before you add liquid. As it cooks, it forms a stiff paste that's called a "roux".

    Once you add milk or whatever liquid you're using, it stops being a "roux" and starts turning into a sauce. "Make a roux, then add hot milk and some grated cheese."

    It depends on which meaning you want. I'm guessing you're talking about an English translation for the French word "roux".

    The one megalomaniac is probably thinking about is about a mix of fat and flour used in cooking. The translation in English is "roux", as English borrowed it from French.

    But more common meanings of that word in French translate to "red haired" as an adjective or a "red haired man/men" as a noun. The word "ginger" also covers it but can be derogatory.

    When an animal is described as "roux" in French, it's often described as "red" in English. So "un écureuil roux" is "a red squirrel".

    None is needed, we use the same word in English to mean the same thing.  English does a lot of that, namely borrowing words from other languages.
