Soothe your Soul with French Onion Soup

Soups nourish the body as well as the soul.  There’s nothing that beats a great soup on a cold day, but most of the folks here at Restaurant Supply are known for having soups year round.   Ranked above all of them is French Onion Soup.

This soup is incredibly simple in nature.  Caramelize some onions, get some beef broth, put in a little bread and some cheese, and there you go.   This soup can be rustic and simple, or it can be incorporated into the menus of the most elegant fine dining establishments.  The combination of savory and sweet hits almost every note.

When we order French onion soup, we get a small thrill when we see the ceramic onion soup crock brought out to the table.  We know that the process of caramelization and preparation took hours, and all of those efforts are quite appreciated by the diners.  As Daniel Gritzer says in Serious Eats, there’s no excuse for poor French onion soup.

French onion soup as listed as one of the 25 best soups in Cooking Light.  Recipes for this culinary delight are included everywhere, from Cooking Channel TV to the five star offering at Bon Appetit.  A search for French onion soup recipes yields variations which land all over the map.
