The burnt pot incident at school was only discussed for a second. Another apology from Chef. (enough already) A prep day, we sort of eased back into school. Today, we have two braises going. One is a Lamb Shank, and the other is a veal dish served in a puff pastry. Chef A surprised everyone with tuna melt on crusty french bread and a student made a peach pie for all to share. I had purchased some ice cream for a cake Chef A made last week, and there was enough left over for the peach pie.
French cooking term for the day:
Veloute' - (ve loo toay) One of the Primary sauces made with stock and a blond roux.
We're using this sauce today with the Veal dish, adding a liaison of cream and egg yoke.
