  • About

The essence of chicken, a clear, golden yellow ambrosia that slips down the throat pleasurably, either hot or cold. It really is perfect on its own, but if a need is felt to add things, anything other than an herb should be cooked separately, so as not to cloud the consommé. Tarragon or dill would be the herb of choice.
