Nouvelle demiglace

Bring the stock to a boil, immediately lower heat to simmer, and reduce by one-half. For more intense, thicker, richer demiglace you may reduce further. For instance, Commander's Palace in New Orleans reduces 50 gallons of stock to 2 gallons for demiglace. Fabulous, but hardly practical outside a restaurant kitchen.

Classical demiglace

Reduce the stock by 1/3. Add the sauce Espagnole and reduce until you're left with one quart. Strain the sauce through cheesecloth.
