Colbert Defined and Recipe

Colbert—Name given to a sauce and a soup. Sauce made of a pint of good Espagnole, into which is mixed a little meat glaze, lemon juice. chopped parsley, and red pepper, made very hot without being boiled, then very gradually beaten in a half pint of clear melted butter. The soup is made with a rich consommé and contains shredded celery and lettuce blanched, diced artichoke bottoms and small button onions.

COLBERT SOUP—Another way is to make a rich cream soup lightly thickened with a liaison of egg yolks and cream, into which is then worked a pureé of blanched hearts of endive, a fresh soft poached egg being served with each portion.
