      The recipe states in the ingredients listing, 1 1/2 quarts of shellfish would have made it so much easier for the normal cook if a recipe for the veloute had been included. The everyday cook would not have a clue as to what shellfish veloute even is. It's an elegant recipe, but worthless to most people, without the veloute recipe included.
