    There was a tomato tartare post on here a few weeks back that inspired me to try my own version. This is Thomas Keller's Tomato Tartare with Lindera Farms Spicebush vinegar, toasted brioche, chives, Mossimo's parmesan cream, and 4 year Husk country ham.

    Thanks. Great tips. I make chicken stock regularly but only ever using the first style you mentioned. I'll give it a go with the wings/feet too.

    All your sauces look wonderful. I find sauces to be one of the most challenging aspects of home cooking to get right. The timing, consistency, color, flavor, texture, temperature, etc. Do you make batch sauces and freeze them or are you doing most of those simultaneously with your meal?
