5.0 out of 5 stars A Must For any Cook, March 25, 2012
This review is from: More Than Gourmet Classic French Demi-Glace, 1.5-Ounces (Pack of 6) (Grocery)
I have used all of More Than Gourmet's products, and this staple has to be my favorite, or at least my most used one. I probably use this on a good 20% of all my main course recipes.

There are two main reasons I am a fan. The first is practical. I now work overseas, and I need products with a good shelf. Sure, I can ship via Amazon directly here, but I like to ship to my US address and then bring products with me on the plane. And all of More Than Gourmet's products have extremely long shelf lives. With the smaller 1.5 ounce packages, I use one as I need it and keep the rest in my small pantry. And if I am going to a diner party where I will cook, it is so easy to bring an individual package. (I also buy the larger 16 ounce container as well, and keep it in the fridge after opening.)

The second one, and this one is the most important, is that it tastes great. It does not have that artificial aftertaste which I find in most powered demi-glace. There is a richness in it which makes everything taste better. I not only use it in typically French-type dishes, but in Italian pasta sauces, all stews, some egg dishes, pot roasts, and even Mexican, Arabic, and Chinese dishes.

Working in SE Asia, getting good beef is problematic and quite expensive. But pork is good. I have discovered that adding some of the demi-glace to a pork pot roast or to a bourguignon goes along way to make it richer and "beefier."

Frankly, I could not do without my More Than Gourmet demi-glace. It iis a must item in any cook's pantry.
