This afternoon we had a French cooking workshop down in the student lounge – where we made a delicious and hearty French onion soup – perfect for a winter’s day!
We took a few shortcuts with the recipe, but it still tasted amazing! Jun and Sanae from Japan and Laryssa from Brazil helped my chop a huge bag of onions, which we sauteed in plenty of butter until they were soft. Then, we added brown sugar and Jun (who is a trainee chef!) caramelised the onions. We added flour, beef stock and lots of pepper; and simmered the soup in the pan.
As if that weren’t scrumptious enough, we sprayed fresh bread with olive oil spray, rubbed it with a halved clove of garlic, and sprinkled it with cheese before blasting it in the microwave for some tasty melted cheese bread to go with our soup.
