Online Chef Course: Vegetable Nage Receipe

Enroll in one of our Online Chef Course and learn how to make a good receipe.

What is a nage? It is an aromatic stock that is both aromatic and fragrant. 

This is a perfect accompaniment with poached or steamed fish, shellfish and poultry.


1.Roughly chop all the vegetables and add to the pot, making sure to keep them about the same size to ensure they cook at the same time. No need to remove skins or heads of vegetables…they all add to the flavour.

2.Add the wine.

3.Bring to the boil and simmer for a minimum of 20 minutes.

4.Whilst the pot is still on the hob and warm, add all the aromatics.

5.Add a little salt and pepper to taste.

6.Take off the heat and allow to cool.

7.Refrigerate for 24hrs.

8.Remove from the fridge and pass the stock through a sieve.

Your nage is now ready to be used for a dish of your choice…ENJOY!
