Say "Oui" to French Cuisine
French cuisine has for centuries been synonymous with avant garde gastronomy and fine dining. But as the world increasingly globalizes, and cuisines continue to fuse, many traditional French techniques are becoming more and more obsolete.
Chef Darren McGrady, this month’s CrateChef featured chef, has reintroduced use to the Classic French Demi-Glace. Developed by More Than Gourmet, this rich, hearty product is made in the old-world tradition of Georges Auguste Escoffier–a French chef, restaurateur and culinary writer.
“The quality of this Demi-glace is superior to any store-bought bouillon cubes,” Chef Darren McGrady shares. The sauce comprises of brown stock and Sauce Espagnole which is reduced fourfold in a 30-hour reduction process. The result is a decadent sauce with beautiful shine, flavor and texture. Try it in a stew, gravy or risotto.
The Classic French Demi-Glace is a simple way to elevate your home cooking with a touch of French elegance. As the seasons change and the weather cools, the flavors of this demi-glace will fill you with ease and contentment.
