    -GEORGE-'s Note:

    A easy sauce that works very well on vegetables and fish. Can be prepared with or without the mushrooms. This recipe comes from Marie Antonin Careme, "L'Art de la cuisine francaise au dix-neuvieme siecle", 1854, vol III. Preparation and cook times are approximate. Enjoy.

      I made this to serve over Mushroom Stuffed Salmon Fillet and it was perfect! I cut milk in half and used the water I had reserved from reconstituting dried mushrooms. I think next time I will finely chop the mushrooms before sauteing. Thanks George for a great recipe!

      Extremely good, a traditional suace, but easy and flavoursome, my family loved it, and I will definitely be making this more often as it will go with meats, vegetables, pastas, over rice... very versatile! My family love mushrooms and this is yet another way to serve these versatile vegetables. Thank you George, for an excellent recipe. Made for PAC Spring 2008
