Picture of Hearty Onion Soup

Hearty Onion Soup

For an onion soup that lingers in your mind long after the last spoonful is gone, try this creamy blend of caramelized onions that's puréed with Riesling wine and a dash of sherry, along with the robust flavor of Jus de Poulet Lié Gold. Gruyère croutons are a contemporary interpretation of the typical (and often too heavy) cheese topping.

Julia's Carrots

Now this is how to cook carrots: follow Julia Child's lead and simmer them slowly in a sweet-savory mixture of brown stock (our Glace de Viande), butter, and a little sugar. The liquid is cooked down to a deeply flavored, shiny glaze that coats the tender carrots. They're the perfect complement to a holiday roast, although you may be tempted to just eat a plate of them with no accompaniment at all. Julia would probably approve.

Julia's Classic French Tomato Sauce

We've adapted this recipe for tomato sauce from Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking. We don't know if the French have been making tomato sauce as long as the Italians, but this sauce is one of the five traditional French "mother sauces," which are all delicious on their own or as bases for variations made with added ingredients. This sauce is rich in savory flavor from gently cooked vegetables and ham and the addition of our hearty brown stock. Enjoy it over pasta or in any dish that calls for a good tomato sauce.
