Mirpua (mirepoix). This vegetable mixture consists of 50% onions, 25% carrots and 25% celery stalks. Mirpua (named after the Duke de Mirpua) is used to give a subtle but very pleasant background to cooked dishes. Cut te vegetables into small pieces, make sure the size and shape are relatively uniform.  The less cooking time, the smaller and thinner pieces should be and the longer – the bigger and thicker.

Bon Appetit!
