Classics of French cuisine.
Every time I heard about this soup, I recalled a scene from my favorite childhood movie “Midshipmen, Go!”. The scene when Yaguzhinskaya says to de Brillies – “As for you Frenchmen, your favorite dish is frogs. And onion soup, one onion for a bucket of water. ”:)
To prepare our soup, we need not one onion, but a little more, and we can also do without a bucket of water.
The soup was delicious! Thick, creamy with rich creamy taste.
The main thing is to use sweet juicy onions (I used white).
