DIRECTIONS

  • In a medium saucepan over medium heat, add butter. When hot, add the mirepoix, stir, and cook for 6-7 minutes or until soft, stirring often. Add chervil, stir well before adding flour; stir to coat and cook for 2 minutes to remove the raw taste of it. Add cold broth, stirring constantly and scraping the bottom of the pot. Add pepper, salt and bay leaf. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to medium; simmer for 30 minutes.
  • Pour sauce through a sieve before using, squeezing the ingredients and then discard them. Use it or pour it back to the pot if making another recipe with it. Makes 2 ½ cups.
