Thanks :) Actually, I didn't know the term "Mirepoix" :) So , here is what I found on Wiki - Mirepoix is the French name for a combination of onions, carrots and celery (either common Pascal celery or celeriac). Mirepoix, either raw, roasted or sautéed with butter, is the flavor base for a wide number of dishes, such as stocks, soups, stews and sauces.
