  • Bordelaise Butter

    In classical French cuisine, a bordelaise sauce is a rich red wine demiglace sauce traditionally mounted with bone marrow. In our Creole tradition, however, bordelaise has come to mean a garlic butter or garlic, butter, and olive oil sauce. At Emeril's Delmonico, we use this Bordelaise Butter as the basis of our pasta bordelaise, such as the Delmonico Fried Oyster Bordelaise.
