  • 1

I am ready to take on classic veal demi-glace, and am willing to devote a weekend to it. I have also located a source for the veal bones. Does anybody have a link to an authentic recipe? Am trying to avoid using thickeners like roux.

Thanks

  1. Basic classic demi-glace explanation, courtesy of Wiki:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demi-glace
    Old skool style FYI, with Espagnole (brown) sauce base (roux-thickened) and you really don't need to go through all that effort:

    New skool, with nice photos, reduction only, no roux, as a base for pan-reduced or roux-thickened sauces or glace de viande:

    See the Home Cooking Board Discussions, below, for more threads on this subject.

    I personally use something akin to the blog recipe, reduce the stock by at least half, and prefer Madiera to red wine.
