Shrimp, ham , corn soup, white bean soup, Shrimp and Okra Gumbo, it’s all good, I’m a soup guy, love it all!
Thomas Keller is my favorite chef. Everything I've made from his recipes (which I never have modified) has been excellent, but usually takes a lot of preparation (like 2 days for french toast).An onion soup like you could get in Paris and n most of the bistros. Just onion slices browning in the pot, adding some water or better chicken or beef stock, simmer for a half an hour. Salt and black pepper to your liking. Then put it in bowls with a few dry pieces of baguette put some cheese on top and put it in the oven.
I had forgotten about French Onion! My wife does that just once or twice a year, but oh boy is that an evening to look forward to. Made with a mixture of sweet and standard onions, a splash of port, then gruyere broiled on top, and paired with a glass of port -- mwa! This needs to happen again soon.
