Although well-known in the United States (it even appears on the TGI Friday’s menu), French Onion Soup is actually an ancient soup that originated in France and is typically affiliated with the poor because it was cheap and simple soup to make.
This French Onion Soup recipe comes from Chef Danielle at CookingClarified.com.
Of all the soup’s we’ve covered so far, this is likely the only one my mother will make! French Onion Soup is one of her favorites. Bon appetite, maman!
I can thank Thai food, in part, for my friendship with Chef Danielle Turner of CookingClarified.com.
As staffers at a non-profit in Washington, DC, we used to hang out after work at a nearby Thai restaurant sampling Pad Thai, laab, crab rangoon, and talking about everything from pop culture to politics to – you guessed it – food.
She’s also a fantastic cook; my family still raves about some of the meals she’s thrown together.
So Chef Danielle’s recipe for coconut chicken & shrimp soup, which is based on the shrimp and lemongrass soup known in Thailand as Tom Yum soup, is also a great reminder of how food and friendship can go hand in hand.
Why not put together a pot of soup and invite over your best friend to share a meal and a conversation?
