I will do my best to help you today as well.


We hope that you will feel that this encounter is a very valuable and meaningful encounter.


Please stay with us until the end.


Speaking of French cuisine, it has a high threshold and requires advanced technology and labor, so it cannot be reproduced at home! It is easy to think that.

Certainly, in restaurants, etc., many people are mobilized and it is made with great effort.

However, on the other hand, French food is eaten on a daily basis in every French family. Of course, there are differences between the dishes made at French restaurants and the dishes made at home, but the French cuisine that can actually be made at home in Japan today is simplified from the basic bouillon soup. However, I would like to introduce how to make it so that you can feel the spirit of French cuisine.

Well then, thank you again today ^ ^


《Chicken Ju》

This is the "basic chicken bouillon soup" introduced in the previous blog, and by adding chicken broth and simmering, it is finished in a richer soup stock. In French, "jus ju" refers to juice or liquid soup.

As a base for French cuisine sauce, it can be applied in various ways as a "soup stock" with concentrated umami.

③. When it boils, reduce the heat to low and simmer for about 3 hours while carefully scooping the lye.

At this time, if you boil it too much, the soup will become cloudy, so let's simmer gently over low heat.

Strain to finish, then cool and store.


《Chicken Glass de Boraille》

* Glass de Boraille is a concentrated soup made by further boiling and concentrating the above "chicken ju". It is also packed with chicken collagen, so it hardens into a jelly when cooled.

As a usage, it is used to give richness to the finish of the sauce.


a. Chicken juu ……… 300ml

Quatre Epis (mixed spices of 4 spices, usually pepper, nutmeg, ginger and cloves in powder form) ……… 1 tbsp

a. Sliced ginger ……… 1 piece

・ White wine ……… 30ml

[How to make]

That's all for today.
