Using Kismet Refining Vinegar when creating a pan sauce is simple and suitable for all sorts of proteins from chicken to steak. Our vinegar is crafted to have all the essentials of using say a white wine with dialed in acidity and residual sugar.

As you rest your meat take the time to develop a pan sauce using the fond or the juices and leftover bits. Quite simply we are making an emulsion of flavor and seeking to incorporate all the rendered fats that were left behind from cooking your protein to make a smooth glazy reduction to top the protein.
