Previously, on tastingmenu.wordpress.com – * https://tastingmenu.wordpress.com/2014/08/22/veal-stock/ * https://tastingmenu.wordpress.com/2012/08/20/recreating-a-matsuhisa-omakase-dish/ …You can’t have a good sauce if you start with a bad stock. Too many take stocks for granted…Every step of the way, you remove impurities. Everything follows from this.                                                       […]
