Duck Consomme

Consommé is one of those things I always had a hard time with.  Honestly, I was so discouraged in my earlier years of my career that I had not tried again for the past 8 or so years.  Until now.   We served this duck consomme with a duck ravioli and julienne vegetables.

Duck Stock to be clarified.

 

Chicken and veg that will be passed through the grinder.

 

Chicken, veg and egg whites.  “The raft”.

 

The raft mixed with the cold stock.

 

The formed raft.  Is it clarified?

 

Strained Stock.

 

Crystal clear consommé.  Intense duck flavor completely devoid of fat.
