    Understanding Mirepoix


    Mirepoix is a mixture of diced vegetables—typically two parts onions, 1 part carrots, and 1 part celery(2:1:1) that serves as the flavor base for many dishes. This aromatic combination adds depth and complexity to soups, stews, sauces, and braises. The slow cooking of mirepoix allows the flavors to meld together, creating a harmonious foundation for your culinary creations. This may seem really basic however my experience has been that this powerful combination is the basis for fantastic cooking, try it and tell us what you think.
