It was April and we were in Paris.
Dining at Man Ray, then on to the Buddha Bar for fabulous people watching, music, and champagne. It was our last night in Paris. We wanted to savour all Paris had to offer.
The night sky was fading as we wandered into an old bistro in the lst Arrondissment. The area where the citizens of the old market place of Les Halles worked 24 hours a day distributing food to every corner of Paris.
This is where we ended our Paris with bowls of restorative onion soup, crowned with bread encrusted with rich, melted Gruyere cheese.
Most recipes for this soup use a beef stock base. This recipe uses chicken stock. The flavour is lighter and the onions play the starring role. Just click on FRENCH ONION SOUP and start slicing your onions. Bon Appetit!
