Was the orange juice reduction sauce quite simple? I can't see myself making something as beautiful as this rouget, but I would love a nice orange sauce to pour over cod or salmon some day!


did the gingerbread have licorice in it? in dijon they put that in. i never understand theneed to use licorice as a spice. t's mom just gave us some plum preserves with licorice in it to spice it up. it is quite nasty. not a licorice girl at all...

HI Gillian! The sauce reduction is really easy but requires a few pots.

Take one shallot and mince. Add 100ml white wine and reduce to 2 Tablespoons over low heat. Reduce juice of two oranges to a syrup over low heat. Mix the two reductions together and whisk in 100g of butter little by little to make a beurre blanc sauce (that's a lot of butter!!!!). Let simmer for 2 min. to complete emulsion and strain out shallots. You can add brunoised carrots and orange peel that have been precooked too.

Bonjour Jeorg!

The gingerbread did not have licorice in it and I wonder if it would be overpowered by the cinnamon and nutmeg. What did you think of the one you had in Dijon?

I think it's one of those spices that is best when paired with one or two other subtle flavors not a whole bunch of strong ones.

I did have a licorice flan the other day that was delicious. Just plain milk with licorice spice and a little caramel. It was pretty too because the opaque white milk custard was flecked with little dots of vanilla and licorice.

I do like licorice, but typically the candy kind that comes in long twisted black ropes ;-)



I just found your blog by clicking on the link at blog top sites. Love your pictures and interesting reports about Le Cordon bleu. I'll sure come back!


Cool. I remember I ate once the red mullet in Paul Bocuse cooked in similar style, though with a heavier reduction. Do they available all year long or there's a in season for it?


This meal looks delicious... how can I find the recipes for the red mullet with scalloped potato crust, the orange sauce, and the broccoli flans?
