fond de veau

veal stock

fond de veau

A fond de veau is made by boiling bones, meat, vegetables, herbs and spices for hours and hours until they are reduced to a thick sauce. For fond brun de veau the bones, meat and vegetables are first browned in the oven; a fond blanc de veau eliminates that step.

These days many chefs rely on the ready-to-use versions, either in a powder or as stock cubes.
