Tuesday’s Cupful: Oh Fricasee, What Art Thou?

A fancy white stew

This dish consists of stewed or braised ingredients in tasty gravy. Fricassee is also a method for cooking and preparing ingredients. The main ingredients include chicken pieces (on the bone) or veal along with cubed veggies, such as carrots or celery. The gravy’s appearance should be white to very light brown, but no darker. Look for different recipes for fricassees throughout the South where it’s prevalent and popular as a comfort food dish. Meanwhile, a Cajun fricassee calls for seafood instead of chicken or veal. A traditional Greek fricassee is usually flavored with pork. Popular thickening agents include butter, milk, or cream.
