Despite the name, Julienne is an Eastern European dish, which is made by sautéing a small amount of flour in a hot, dry skillet until it is golden brown and adding clarified butter. The latter method reminds me of French ‘roux’ – the traditional thickening agent for classical French sauces and gravies.
