Espagnole sauce

Espagnole sauce is a basic brown sauce, is one of Auguste Escoffier's five mother sauces of classic French cooking. Escoffier popularized the recipe, still followed today. Espagnole has a strong taste, is used directly on food; as a mother sauce, it serves as the starting point for many derivatives, such as sauce africaine, sauce bigarade, sauce bourguignonne, sauce aux champignons, sauce charcutière, sauce chasseur, sauce chevreuil, demi-glace. Hundreds of other derivatives are in the classical French repertoire. Escoffier included a recipe for a Lenten espagnole sauce, using fish stock and mushrooms, in Le Guide culinaire, but doubted its necessity; the basic method of making espagnole is to prepare a dark brown roux, to which veal stock or water is added, along with browned bones, pieces of beef, brown sugar and various seasonings. This blend is allowed to reduce while being skimmed; the classic recipe calls for additional veal stock to be added as the liquid reduces, but today, water is used instead.

Tomato paste or pureed tomatoes are added towards the end of the process, the sauce is further reduced. Espagnole is the French word for "Spanish". According to Louis Diat, the creator of vichyssoise and the author of the classic Gourmet's Basic French Cookbook: "There is a story that explains why the most important basic brown sauce in French cuisine is called sauce espagnole, or Spanish sauce. According to the story, the Spanish cooks of Louis XIII's bride, helped to prepare their wedding feast, insisted upon improving the rich brown sauce of France with Spanish tomatoes; this new sauce was an instant success, was gratefully named in honor of its creators." In Kettner's Book of the Table, published in 1877, an different explanation is given: When the Bourbons made their way to the Spanish throne under Louis XV, when Spanish fashions came back to Paris, the French cooks took a hint from the Spanish pot-au-feu—the olla podrida—and produced a variation of their brown sauce which they called "Spanish".

The essential principle of the French pot-au-feu was beef. The Duc de St. Simon sent home marvellous accounts of the hams of Montanches. Great as they are in pig's flesh, they are poor hands at ham, they ran wild after ham... And so, by introducing the flavour of the Estremadura bacon and ham into the old brown sauce of the French, there came into being the Spanish sauce... The hams of Montanches are not too plentiful in this world of sorrow, the cooks came to be satisfied with any ham—even with French ham, little better than salted pork. So the meaning of the prescription was lost; the name "Kettner" in the title refers to Auguste Kettner, former chef to Napoleon III, who emigrated to England and in 1867 opened a restaurant in Soho, Kettner's, one of the oldest restaurants in London.

British Phosphate Commission

The British Phosphate Commissioners was a board of Australian and New Zealand representatives who managed extraction of phosphate from Christmas Island and Banaba Island from 1920 until 1981. Following its defeat in World War I, Germany was forced to relinquish all of its territorial assets around the world, including the island of Nauru. Nauru came under joint trusteeship of the United Kingdom and New Zealand. In 1919, the three trustees signed the Nauru Island Agreement, which entitled them to the phosphate of Nauru through the British Phosphate Commissioners, they bought back all the assets of the Pacific Phosphate Company for more than 3.5 million pounds on 1 July 1920, started to manage it directly on 1 January 1921, after a six-month transition period of PPC management. Most of PPC's former employees were retained by the BPC. From 1919 the responsibility for the welfare of the people of Nauru and Banaba, the restoring of land and water resources lost by mining operations and compensation for environmental damage to the islands was under the control of the governments of United Kingdom, New Zealand and Australia.

Under a policy established under the German administration, royalty payments were given to landowners. In 1921, the British Phosphate Commissioners increased royalty payments from one-half pence to one and one-half pence per ton of phosphate extracted. In 1927, a new agreement was reached, giving the Nauruans one-half pence per ton. By 1939, Nauruans were receiving 9% of the phosphate revenues; this amount is still somewhat insignificant because at this time, Nauruan phosphate was selling far below world market prices. Throughout B. P. C. Control, significant profits were made. In 1948, revenues from the island's phosphate reached $745,000. In 1967 the Nauruans purchased the assets of the B. P. C. And, in 1970, the newly independent Republic of Nauru established the Nauru Phosphate Corporation. In 1965, the Banaban islanders, after decades of land disputes, royalty fees, "exploitation," started legal litigation against the British Phosphate Commissioners in British court. After more than a decade, the case came to an end, with the Banabans only being awarded £1 and were still made to pay their own legal fees of more than £300,000.

The Australian government through the B. P. C. offered £780,000 in reparations. The first European to recommend mining of phosphate for commercial exploitation was Sir John Murray, a British naturalist, during the 1872–76 Challenger expedition, his discovery led to annexation of the island by the British Crown on 6 June 1888. In 1900 the Pacific Islands Company Ltd commenced mining on Ocean Island, with 1550 tons shipped from September to December 1901 and 13,350 tons in the following year. John T. Arundel and Lord Stanmore, directors of PIC, were responsible for financing the new opportunities and negotiating with the German company that controlled the licences to mine in Nauru. In 1902 the interests of PIC were merged with Jaluit Gesellschaft of Hamburg, to form the Pacific Phosphate Company Ltd, to engage in phosphate mining in Nauru and Ocean Island. Following the Nauru Agreement of 2 July 1919 the interests of the PPC in the phosphate deposits in Nauru and Ocean Island were acquired by the governments of the United Kingdom and New Zealand, which carried out mining under the direction of the Board of Commissioners, which represented the three governments.

In March 1981, the Phosphate Mining Company of Christmas Island, a company established and controlled by the Australian Government, took over mining operations This arrangement lasted until December 1987 when the company was disbanded. The mining operation was taken over by the Union of Christmas Island Workers. Nauru Nauru Phosphate Corporation Nauru Phosphate Royalties Trust Paradise for Sale: A Parable of Nature.
