Grand Christmas Menu

Think of this, if you wish, as exquisitely refined chicken noodle soup. You do actually refine the chicken stock, by trapping impurities in a raft of egg whites, ground meat, and mirepoix, which results in a crystal-clear consommé perfect for showing off the delicate ribbons of herbed crêpe in the bowls. Your guests might think of it as a Christmas miracle, but this is a natural to serve any time of year, for any special occasion on your calendar.
