Classic French Onion Soup

Bravado cooking is about a number of things, one of which is a respect for the great classic dishes.  There is a reason why we have classics – because they are dependably good.  I was reminded of this a few nights ago when I took a dessert to a dinner party.  I could have made a classic Tarte Tatin and wowed the crowd, but then, I thought, they have had that before so I’ll try something new.  I experimented with a recipe from Jamie Oliver (The Naked Chef).  It was coconut banana bread with a mango and yogurt topping.  It was really not very good and afterwards I said to myself “stick with the classics”.

In recent weeks we have been exploring the great French classics and there are few better than French onion soup.  This is the gold standard of soups and any worthy Bravado chef needs to be able to make this great dish. (more…)
