I know we think of French Onion Soup when we connect soup and France. But it is summer. Why not try a cold soup that is often attributed to the French. Vichyssoise is actually a soup created by a French chef from the Ritz-Carlton in New York in the early 20th century. The ingredients are leeks, potatoes, cream, and chicken stock. Here is Chef Diat’s recipe from the Ritz-Carlton. There are many variations on that soup today.
Chef Diat based his recipe on his childhood memories of his mother’s chilled Leek and Potato Soup. Here is a recipe from Julia Child for that Leek and Potato Soup. Either one will be a true delight on a hot summer day in mid-July.
Now – to really enjoy that soup, don’t forget the baguette. Is any soup truly complete without bread? Sturdiwheat has it! Just add water. Easy. Healthy. Natural. There is nothing better than the aroma of that fresh bread baking in your home. And you can be that Master Baker with this baguette mix from Sturdiwheat. Go for it. You won’t be disappointed. And the French will think you are one of them! How’s that for a bonus!
