    Miraklegirl's Note:

    From "The Cook and the Gardener" , a wonderful recipe that doesn't remotely resemble the -soggy raft of bread tied to a bowl with bad cheese-that many people call Onion Soup.

      Lovely, lovely winter soup. I had this made for me as I've been quite sick recently and was really craving onion soup and this version provided great, robust flavour without being too heavy. Loved the sprinkle of parmesan in the bowl rather than coating the whole top of the soup with cheese (which does have its merits - just didn't want to go that way this time). A keeper.

      This was a delicious and flavorful soup -- just perfect for a winter night. I love the dry skillet method of toasting the bread -- I used a peasant bread and it was perfect with the recipe. Thank you so much for sharing this.
