Take Stock : Seafood Chowder

Warm up for winter and join Red Seal chefs Edwin Guiaya & Elizabeth Grimaldi for this introduction to making flavourful soup. From the foundations of stock to the delectable finishing touches of savory soup, you're sure to enjoy!

Fish stocks are clear, light bodied, and have a pronounced fish flavour. The bones used should
come from non-oily fish, flat fish bones are the best for making fish stock. The fish bones used
to make a fish stock should be washed but not blanched because blanching them removes too
much of the flavour. A fish stock requires a shorter cooking time than other types of stocks. It
usually takes only 30-40 minutes to extract the full flavour needed for a tasty stock.
Seafood Chowder is a crowd pleaser and a great soup to make using fish stock. It is hearty and
creamy with lots of textures. It is comforting and up-lifting.

Warm up for winter and join Red Seal chefs Edwin Guiaya & Elizabeth Grimaldi for this introduction to making flavourful soup. From the foundations of stock to the delectable finishing touches of savory soup, you're sure to enjoy!

Beef stock should have a good flavour, rich amber-brown colour, and have a high gelatin
content. Beef stock can be brown or white depending on what they are being used for. Beef
stock is typically made from beef, veal, chicken, and game bones. This stock needs mirepoix,
tomato paste and herbs.
French Onion Soup is a classic and incredibly flavourful soup made with brown beef stock. Its
flavour comes from the caramelization of onions and the ooey gooey cheese. It is timeless and
elegant.
