Picture of Classic Velouté

Classic Velouté

This simple, traditional sauce made with chicken stock is one of the five "mother sauces," from which many other sauces can be made by adding a variety of differenct ingredients. It's delicious on its own with roasted, poached, or sautéed chicken or with egg dishes--just add a little cream if you like.
Picture of Classic Vichyssoise

Classic Vichyssoise

Cool, smooth, and rich, this chilled soup was invented by a French chef, Louis Diat, in New York in 1917 to celebrate the opening of the Ritz-Carlton Hotel. He made it simply with leeks, onion, potatoes, cream, and rich chicken stock, and he named it after the city of Vichy, France, where he grew up. Garnished lavishly with snipped fresh chives, this elegant and satisfying soup makes the perfect lunch with a slice of French bread and a simple salad--or serve it as a first course for a special dinner.
Picture of Coq au Vin

This chowder is so soul satisfying, no one will guess that it's also quick and easy to make.
Picture of Corn Cream Sauce

Corn Cream Sauce

A simple purée of corn simmered in our Fond de Poulet Gold--with a little white wine, thyme, and cream. It's superb spooned over sautéed sea scallops or trout, or as an accompaniment to grilled chicken or salmon.

Picture of Corned Beef and Cabbage

Corned Beef and Cabbage

Originally a traditional Irish Easter Sunday dinner, this dish has become a fixture in Irish restaurants in America. Succulent beef and tender vegetables served with a hearty broth--it's the perfect centerpiece for your St. Patrick's day celebration or anytime a simple, warming meal is in order. Serve it with a mound of steaming mashed potatoes and a pint of Guinness stout or Smithwick's Irish Ale.
Picture of Couscous Salad with Radishes and Pine Nuts

Couscous Salad with Radishes and Pine Nuts

A refreshing complement to roasted or grilled meats, poultry, or fish. Most of the work can be done ahead of time, but add the radishes just before serving so they remain crisp and retain their bright red border.
Picture of Cranberry Pecan Couscous

Cranberry Pecan Couscous

Rather than serving the same old stuffing with your holiday turkey, try this fragrant couscous with dried cranberries and toasted pecans. It takes just minutes to prepare and will surely gather raves. The secret is More Than Gourmet's Glace de Volaille Gold mixed with a touch of orange juice for a flavor that gives just a hint of the bird's taste. If there are leftovers the day after, add diced turkey and toss with a mustard vinaigrette for a savory salad.

Cream of Broccoli Soup

A comfort food classic smoothed with cream and topped with sharp Cheddar.

This silky smooth purée has a great savory flavor. Serve with grilled steaks, sautéed sea scallops, or, if you're a cauliflower lover, under a roasted cauliflower "steak" (a thick slice of cauliflower, roasted until golden brown).
Picture of Creamy Cheddar Grits

Creamy Cheddar Grits

These buttery grits made with sharp Cheddar and light cream are the perfect side for grilled pork or sausage. You can also ladle beef stew or chili over them for a hearty dinner.

This delicious twist on tomato soup is accented with roasted red peppers, basil, and light cream. Serve it in cups as an appetizer or in generous bowls with salad and bread for a comforting main course.
Picture of Creamy White Bean Soup with Pancetta

Creamy White Bean Soup with Pancetta

It's hard to decide what the best thing about this soup is. Is it the velvety texture? The deep, savory flavor of the beans? The crisp pancetta garnish? The way the background flavors of vegetables and herbs accent the beans? We don't know, but this soup is one of our favorite cold-weather treats. Try some and let us know what you like best.
Picture of Curried Cauliflower and Bean Soup

Curried Cauliflower and Bean Soup

A beautiful soup infused with the warm spice of curry and the hearty flavors of cauliflower and garbanzo beans, puréed to silky smoothness and topped with browned onions.
Picture of Curried Lamb Shanks Over Red Lentils

Curried Lamb Shanks Over Red Lentils

Braised lamb shanks are wonderfully succulent and versatile, as this mildly-spicy curry dish shows. If you like, once the shanks are tender, cut the meat in chunks off the bone. To keep the theme: serve the meat over red lentils simmered in diluted Glace d'Agneau Gold and mixed with a little butter and some dried currants.
Picture of Curried Pumpkin Soup

Curried Pumpkin Soup

The deep golden-orange hue and rich, mellow flavor of this soup make it a fall favorite, perfect as an elegant first course, or as a main course, served with a slice of hearty French bread and green salad garnished with crisp apples.
Picture of Curry Sauce

Curry Sauce

This smooth, spicy sauce is the traditional French version of curry, based on Classic Velouté, rich coconut milk, and fragrant curry powder. Ladle this versatile sauce over poultry, meat, fish, eggs, or vegetables for a delightful—and different—flavor addition.
Picture of Doma's Vegetable Soup

Doma's Vegetable Soup

This delightful vegetable soup recipe was shared with us by a family member, Doma, who lives in the D.C. area and refers to herself as the "covert cook." Hmm, wonder what she does for a living? It's a hearty, tasty vegetable soup recipe great for a large gathering on a cold, blustery winter day. Makes terrific leftovers, too. Thanks Doma, keep on cooking and whatever else you do.
Picture of Dried Cherry Cognac Glace

Dried Cherry Cognac Glace

A rich, decadent sauce spiked with cognac and the sweet tang of dried cherries--marvelous over your best beef or veal roast, or with lamb or venison.
Picture of Drunken Boar

Drunken Boar

Chunks of wild boar are marinated in gin and vermouth with juniper berries and then braised in a rich broth to make a hearty stew. Sour cream and olives are stirred in at the end to make this soul-satisfying cold-weather dish--serve it with your favorite bold red wine.
Picture of Duck Confit

Duck Confit

Confit is derived from an ancient French method of preserving meat: duck legs are seasoned with herbs and spices and then cooked very slowly in rendered duck fat until they are meltingly tender and deeply flavorful. Duck confit can be served on its own, perhaps on a salad dressed with a tangy vinaigrette or nestled in a bowl of cooked white beans with garlic. In addition, the tasty, succulent meat can be shredded and added to soups, stews, or vegetable dishes, or used to make hash, a filling for ravioli, or an appetizer spread (puréed with a little of the cooking fat--the French call this "rillettes"). Make it once and you'll likely want it to become a staple in your pantry!
Picture of Duck Fat Caramel Sauce

Duck Fat Caramel Sauce

There's a fantastic little restaurant in Portland, Maine called Duck Fat. They serve an amazing duck fat caramel milkshake, an exquisite combination of sweet and savory, and this sauce is inspired by that milkshake. Use it to make a caramel milkshake of your own, or drizzle it over vanilla ice cream, an apple or pear tart, or a flourless chocolate cake--or you can just eat it with a spoon straight from the container, as we might admit to doing.
Picture of Duck Fat Pastry

Duck Fat Pastry

For an extraordinary pie or tart crust, we use our Graisse de Canard Gold along with pure unsalted butter. The result is a rich, crisp pastry just right for any savory tart or pie--and maybe some sweet ones, too. We've heard tales of a baker in San Francisco who made some incredibly delicious and quite popular pecan pies with--you guessed it--a duck fat pastry crust.
