    • Approx. 10 bay leaves
    • 1 vanilla bean, split in half (optional, but delicious!)
    • Salt, cayenne or hot sauce, and freshly ground pepper to taste
    • 1 tablespoon of cornstarch + cold water (optional, but recommended!)

  • Preparation

    BROTH PREPARATION

    • Combiner tous les ingrédients dans un grand chaudron, amener à ébullition, réduire le feu et faire mijoter pendant 15 minutes, jusqu’à ce que les saveurs soient bien développées.

    SAUCE PREPARATION

    • In a bowl, combine all sauce ingredients (including 1 cup of hot broth), heat in the microwave for 30 seconds to 1 minute, mix, taste and adjust.

    MEAL FINALIZATION

    • Arrange the ingredients on serving plates.
    • Dissolve the cornstarch in an equivalent amount of cold water, add to the broth, stirring well and bring to a boil.
    • Strain the broth if desired, then pour the required amount into the Fondussimo using a pitcher. Enjoy.

    A few tips

    • Adding cornstarch to thicken the broth at the end of cooking slightly increases its viscosity and therefore its adhesion to food. If it is too thick, however, the broth will produce unwanted spatter. If so, make sure to loosen the broth adding a little bit of water and keep your temperature controller to a low setting.
    • To develop the broth’s fragrance, add lemongrass sticks, kaffir lime leaves, coriander sprigs or star anise. You’re only limited by your imagination!
    • If you plan to cook pasta in the broth, we recommend that you blanch it in advance and make an additional amount of broth, as pasta will absorb the broth more than other ingredients.
