Sauté the onion and celery lightly in the fat until tender but not browned. Cool thoroughly.

Cut the bread into small cubes. If desired, crusts may be trimmed first.

Combine the bread and cooked vegetables in a large stainless-steel bowl. Add the herbs and seasonings and toss gently until all ingredients are well mixed.

Add the stock a little at a time, and mix the dressing lightly after each addition. Add just enough to make the dressing slightly moist, neither dry nor soggy. Adjust the seasonings. Place in a greased baking pan and bake at 375°F (190°C), until hot at the center, about 1 hour.
