A Quick Overview Of Blanquette, Blanquettes
A blanquette *(f) is a type of white ragoût or stew. The word ‘blanquette’ comes from the French word for ‘white’ – ‘blanc’. A ‘white ragoût’ or ‘stew’ simply means that the meat, chicken, or fish is not browned in oil or fat before the stock and vegetables are added.
A blanquette differs from a fricassée in that a blanquette is cooked with the stock and vegetables, and the sauce finished at the end of cooking by thickening it with a liaison of eggs and cream, whereas a fricassée is cooked directly in the thickened sauce. A blanquette contains white meat – usually veal, or chicken. Examples of blanquettes are:
- blanquette de veau – veal blanquette;
- blanquette de volaille - chicken, or more strictly speaking ‘poultry’ blanquette.
