Classic French onion soup

A classic soup in 5 or 6 ingredients only. Very easy to give in to trying, especially if you have been watching culinary show after show on a rainy evening. The urge to get off that sofa and into the kitchen… was worth it. Making French onion soup when you already have white wine at […]
