Similar to a Mirepoix, a Matignon is sometimes referred to as an edible mirepoix with the addition of bacon or ham. It consists of carefully and tastefully cut carrots, onion and celery that are cooked very slowly in butter until very soft, or cooked with the dish and intended to be served as a garnish to the dish. The main difference between a Mirepoix and a Matignon is: A Mirepoix is rough cut and strained out, unlike a Matignon that is carefully cut and served as a part of the garnish of a dish.
