One of my New Year’s resolutions is to try to keep up with the French Fridays with Dorie group who are cooking their way through Dorie Greenspan’s, Around My French Table. Friday’s are difficult for me to cook or post on my blog as we usually go to our Savannah house or visit one of the girls for the weekend. Yesterday, as I was waiting the the refrigerator repairman to come fix a leak in my ice maker with a window of between 8am and 5pm, I had an opportunity to make the Paris Mushroom soup as well as this soup and a French baguette to go with my French soup.
An easy soup to make; basically, sauteed onions, garlic, mushrooms, a bit of white wine, some parsley and rosemary cooked briefly in a broth, then pureed. Maybe not a beautiful soup, but the flavor is incredible. Next time I make it, I probably won’t puree it, but still top it with the colorful mushroom and scallion salad. Creme fraiche with it’s smooth texture adds a pleasant tangy flavor to complement the soup and the salad.
“Around My French Table” is full of homestyle, but classic French recipes collected by Ms Greenspan over the many years living and traveling in France. A wonderful addition to any culinary library!
