      A white chicken stock

    • B.

      A brown beef stock

    • C.

      A fish stock

    Correct Answer
    B. A brown beef stock
    Explanation
    An estoufade is a type of stock that is made from beef bones and vegetables, which are simmered together for a long period of time to extract flavor and create a rich, brown color. This type of stock is commonly used as a base for sauces, soups, and stews, and it adds depth and richness to dishes.

    A stock will turn cloudy if

    • A.

      It is skimmed of fat regularly

    • B.

      It is simmered gently

    • C.

      It is boiled rapidly

    Correct Answer
    C. It is boiled rapidly
    Explanation
    When a stock is boiled rapidly, the impurities and fat that are present in the stock rise to the surface and create a cloudy appearance. The rapid boiling causes turbulence in the liquid, which prevents the impurities from settling and keeps them suspended in the stock. This leads to a cloudy and less visually appealing stock.

      A bunch of edible flowers

      A garnish that has lots of aroma

    • C.

      A bundle of herbs used to add flavour

    Correct Answer
    C. A bundle of herbs used to add flavour
    Explanation
    A bouquet garni is a bundle of herbs used to add flavor to dishes. It typically consists of herbs such as parsley, thyme, and bay leaves, tied together with string or wrapped in a cheesecloth. The bouquet garni is added to soups, stews, and sauces during cooking to infuse the dish with the flavors of the herbs. It is then removed before serving, as the herbs themselves are not usually meant to be eaten.

    A glaze is a stock that has been:

    • A.

      Reduced to 10 % it's original volume

    • B.

      Reduced to 20 % it's original volume

    • C.

      Reduced to 30 % it's original volume

    Correct Answer
    A. Reduced to 10 % it's original volume
    Explanation
    A glaze is a stock that has been reduced to 10% of its original volume. This means that the liquid has been simmered or boiled down to a concentrated form, resulting in a thick and flavorful sauce or coating. By reducing the stock to such a small fraction of its original volume, the flavors become more concentrated and intense, creating a rich and glossy glaze.

    Hollandaise sauce is

    • A.

      A warm emulsion sauce

    • B.

      A cold emulsion sauce

    • C.

      A compound butter sauce

    Correct Answer
    A. A warm emulsion sauce
    Explanation
    Hollandaise sauce is a warm emulsion sauce because it is made by emulsifying melted butter with egg yolks and lemon juice. The warm temperature helps to stabilize the emulsion and create a smooth, creamy texture. Cold emulsion sauces, on the other hand, are made by emulsifying oil with other ingredients at room temperature or below. Compound butter sauce is made by combining softened butter with various flavorings, but it does not involve emulsification.

    A. True
    Explanation
    Derivative sauces are sauces that are derived from the five mother sauces in classical French cuisine. These sauces are created by adding additional flavors and garnishes to the base mother sauce, resulting in a variety of different sauces. Therefore, the statement "Derivative sauces are mother sauces with additional flavors and garnishes added" is true.

This mixture acts as a binding agent and helps to create a smooth and creamy texture in the sauce. The egg yolk provides richness and the cream adds a velvety consistency. By adding a liaison to a sauce, it enhances the flavor and creates a more luxurious and indulgent dish.

    • A.

      Clarifying a brown stock with egg whites

    • B.

      Clarifying a white stock with egg yolks

    • C.

      Clarifying a brown stock with egg yolks

    A. Clarifying a brown stock with egg whites
    Explanation
    Consommé is a clear soup that is made by clarifying a brown stock with egg whites. The process involves adding beaten egg whites to the stock, which helps to trap impurities and create a clear, transparent liquid. As the consommé simmers, the egg whites coagulate and rise to the surface, forming a "raft" that captures any solids or impurities. This results in a clarified, flavorful broth that is free from any cloudiness or particles. Using egg whites in the clarification process is a traditional method that has been used for centuries to achieve a clear consommé.
