Cooking Definition of Fond

Definition: Fond

Fond is French for "base" and commonly refers to the browned bits and caramelized drippings of meat and vegetables that are stuck to the bottom of a pan after sautéing or roasting.

It's often retained as a source of flavor and deglazed with liquid and aromatics like onions and garlic. The fond is the base of a number of classic French pan sauces.
