    Eric, Great podcast as usual and good to hear Mike back. Mike was talking about adding water to a pan that something was just cooked in to release the fond. (Them good burnt up bits!)

    What he was describing is a classic pan sauce. Yup, just like steak au poivre. Pan sauces are a great way to make a quick sauce for the protein that was just cooked. You can add cream, brandy, liqueurs, and don’t forget butter. When adding butter it is called buerre monte and it adds a velvety texture.

    I usually use vegetable stock, which I freeze in 1 cup portions in a zip lock. It will add more flavor than water. If I’m making chicken I’ll use chicken stock, which I have a ready supply of from all those bones from roasted chickens.

    When I studied at the CIA in Hyde Park I had a French chef/instructor who taught us the beauty of pan sauce for ala minute cooking on the restaurant line. That chef could make a stone taste great!

    Pet the labs on head and give them extra snacks. They look lethargic.
